Google has just added some more features to Google Reader so I thought it was appropriate to write a new post to update my post on Getting More Out of Google Reader. Thanks Martin Weller from The Ed Techie for alerting me to how recommendations have now been added to Google Reader (answer to your question — found your blog through Edublog Awards not Google Recommendations).
Recommendations have been added to Google Reader to help with the discovery of new sites to subscribe to by providing personalised recommendations based on your current subscriptions and web history data.
It can be accessed from your Google Reader home page or by clicking on Discover (to browse for feeds – click on the browse tab within Discover).
Drop and Drag
Google Reader has now added drag-and-drop support for your subscriptions and folders which means you can now easily move feeds between folders, as well as reorder things up and down within your subscription list i.e. can re-arrange now with drag-and-drop instead of using Feed Settings or Manage Subscriptions.
Don’t forget to check out the Edublog Awards 2007 finalists because you may find some new blogs to subscribe to in the list. You can vote for your favourite blogs by clicking on each Category title.
Decided to change my blog theme — always get very nervous when I do this. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Better or worse?
