Google Reader Shared Items

Two weeks ago I switched from using Bloglines to Google Reader as my main Web-based RSS aggregator. There were a few reasons behind my switch. One Google Reader has a Wii version of their site. Moreover I really like the way Google Reader handles Shared Items. I don’t spend much time on Digg or sites of the like but I do want to mark from time to time sites from my feeds I find interesting. The Trends tracked by Google Reader is pretty damn cool as well.

Recently Google Reader has made a change so the reader view can view your google contacts shared items. From the Official Google Reader Blog

“So, we’ve linked up Reader with Google Talk (also known as chat in Gmail) to make your shared items visible to your friends from Google Talk. Once you’ve logged into Reader and been notified of the change, these friends will be able to see your shared items in the Reader left-hand navigation area under “Friends’ shared items”.

I love this feature. So far I’ve been able to find Kramer and R***y on here and I’ve found a few great sites from them and what they have been sharing. Anybody else on google reader so I can add them? Also if your not a user of Google Reader you can still view my shared items, also I added a link on the nav.

    I enjoy Google Reader as well. Everything Russ shares is lame though.

    “Jeff” – Lets see you do better!!!! I like google shares more then like digg because it’s easer to do. Since I wrote this post two more friends are sharing items needed to make this issue visible. WOP

    Kramer – Google reader does rock I found a few good lions blogs because of your shares thanks a million. Russ has a few fun items :-*

    You make it sound like I am attacking the validity of it. I’m not. I’m saying that this is a boring topic of no interest to me. Not unlike if you started writing about cross dressing. :razz:
