Sounds great...But please don't call it "Tin". You would be self denigrating everyone who posts there by referring to it as tin.
Plus you would be limiting those sane people who fear the name could be used against them...
Sort of like what has been in the news recently about how the mass murderers had posted to an alternative site called XYZ.
A cool but normal name would take it mainstream, and be user friendly to all.

I personally would not use it. I don't use any of the social networking sites and don't plan to use them.
Personality I think linkages to more public domains would ultimately harm ATS. One of the things that is terrific about the site is that you don't know who you're discussing something with. Thinking about the perspective absent knowing the age, location in many cases, sex and background of the person makes for a richer and more interesting debate environment, IMO.
I also think making it more "maintsteam" detracts from the feel of the site. Its a site for predominately serious folks who want to debate and discuss things in a thoughtful way. Thats exactly the opposite from the tripe that folks put on Facebook.
You've hit a home run with this site the way it is and marginal usability enhancements and some look and feel enhancements to make it seem fresh is all I would recommend, not changing the achitecture or integration with other sites
