Google Reader ads nifty Notes feature

Google Reader is my RSS reader of choice. It makes it possible for me to keep up with about 100 blogs and websites. The “Share” feature (which I mention here from time to time) let’s me flag and post a story to my “shared stories” page. Just click the “more stories” link at the bottom of the little blue box on the right side of this page.

Google has added a Notes feature that let’s me share a story AND include a brief note about it. I can also highlight text on a web page, click the “Note” button in my browser toolbar and add the text… with my note… to my shared page.

I know, it’s a little confusing. But this is good shit. There’s a social networking aspect to this but let’s not go there right now.

If you use Google Reader, check out the notes feature. You can get a better explanation at Techcrunch and the Google Blog.
