Google Readers next step to social
Originally RSS was a way to keep track of websites you are interested in and gather those websites all in one place: your feedreader. Google Reader was one of the many feedreaders around. The main advantage of Google Reader was the fact that it was online so you could get to your feeds wherever you were.
The evolution of Google Reader has been a step by step evolution. The first thing Google did was making your RSS items available for others. If you wanted you could send your friends to your shared items page. But when that turned out to be one step to many Google decided to automatically add your shared items to the reading list of your Google Talk friends.
So Google Reader takes the next step towards social media and takes items which are already featured in other social media sites like Twitter or Friendfeed. What do you think about these changes?
