The lights are on
This isn't all new information, but this FAQ spells everything out about sharing games, multiple users on a single console, and PlayStation Plus advantages in a convenient way.
Users will be able to log into their accounts on other PS4 consoles giving them full access to download and play their library of downloadable games while logged in. There will be no limit to the number of consoles on which you can remotely log into, but you must be logged into your account in order to play the downloaded games on secondary consoles. You will also be allowed to be logged in to a limit of two consoles simultaneously.
Some PlayStation Plus subscription benefits will extend to all users on a single console. For example, if you have a PlayStation Plus account (necessary for online multiplayer on the PlayStation 4), other members of your household who play on separate accounts on your home console will also be able to play online multiplayer. They will also be able to play the games downloaded on that account. In order to do this, you just have to assign your home console as your primary console.
You can check check out the full FAQ here which goes into more detail, and reveals other small details about how users will interact with their PlayStation 4s.
Our TakeThis isn't too far removed to how things currently work on the PlayStation 3. It's especially nice to learn that some PlayStaiton Plus benefits will extend to other users on the same console. As someone who lives in a household where multiple login accounts exist on a single console, this is good news.

This isn't news but let's say it's news while we write that it isn't really news.
This is great.
finally some good news...thanks sony, but i'm not going to tell my wife, which means she can stay on the ps3 while i have the ps4 to myself :) just kidding...
This IS good news, I had some concerns regarding online play, I didn't know if an aditional PS plus membership was needed for my son's PSN account.
"As someone who lives in a household where multiple login accounts exist on a single console, this is good news." -My thoughts exactly.
I'm in the Steam Family beta right now, and this seems very similar, so i really hope that all major digital release programs start to work like this from no on.
Ps3 Login in share download to friend get free Download Good Lucky Friend meet Login in User interesting.
This is so good news!! It's really nice to hear I can still use 2 accounts without having to pay for both also!
Well this is good because I'll be able to share psn games with my brother still, at least when that uncultured brute feels like trying something different.
