You don't need to do anything special to share your annotations. If the track is in a shared playlist and you have permission to edit the playlist then your annotations will be automatically shared with everyone who can view or edit the playlist. As playlist editor you will also be able to edit annotations shared by other editors. As a playlist viewer you can see annotations shared with you, but you can only edit your own annotations.
