Loyal readers of Motor Authority, we know how much you love sharing our content with all your automotive friends. Today, we're excited to announce the release of Motor Authority with amped up sharing features.

The new features are part of an enhanced integration with Facebook that just launched. This new and more social experience allows you, if you choose to--it's your choice whether or not to opt in--to share Motor Authority stories you are reading more easily with your friends, and also discover what Motor Authority stories your Facebook friends are reading.

Here's how it works:

The new Facebook activity feature appears as a series of "Facebook Activity" modules on Motor Authority pages.

If you choose to sign into Facebook and turn this feature on from one of the 'Facebook Activity" modules, you'll see the new features. Users that choose not to try this new feature can continue to enjoy Motor Authority as they always have, unchanged.

For those readers who want to amp up the social features you'll see:

- Thumbnails of your Facebook friends who also enjoy Motor Authority, and the latest articles they are reading on Motor Authority.

- Motor Authority stories posted to your Facebook Timeline, based on what you read on our site with 'social mode" turned on.

- Your current signed in (or out) status, and the ability to turn social mode on or off.

- You can invite your Facebook friends if you want--you can see that button at the end of the thumbnails of your friends.

Since we aim to serve you up great stuff, and many of our fans are very active on Facebook, we're excited to see this in action.

Take it for a spin and let us know what you think of the new social share feature in the comments below.
