Google Makes Reader a Social Tool
Search giant Google (News - Alert) this week has moved to make its Google Reader RSS tool a more social instrument by adding features that allow users to share content anywhere on the Web.
Google Reader will now constantly check favorite news Web sites and blogs for new content, where previously the tool only allowed feeds that users had registered for.
"As it turns out, there's all sorts of information 'out there' just waiting to be streamed, shared and otherwise consumed by you and your friends," wrote Jenna Bilotta, on the official Google Reader blog. "Now you can finally show all of your Reader friends that awesome talking cat video you found, your favorite grilled trout recipe or reviews of the best brunch places in your neighborhood -- all without a subscription."
