Sharing is FUN

Google Reader has added a new functionality to its Shared Items feature – universal sharing. I saw couple of twitters about it the past 2 days, but after reading Idan’s post, I decided to take a deep breath and dive in.

So, if you’re interested (and I know you are – I’m an interesting person after all 😉 in reading the stuff I read (and like), simply add this to your RSS reader. I’ll probably ‘like/share’ more stuff at the beginning, because it’s a new (cool) thing and I’ll get excited, but it will balance eventually. Promise.
