Heard a great way of using Google Reader this week.
I was chatting with Steve Mast, VP and Managing Director of Delvinia about the challenges of consuming so much information. Blog feeds, podcasts, enewsletters, facebook messages, twitter feeds - it all leads to A LOT of information to digest in a day.
Steve shared with me that in his office everyone uses the 'share feed' feature of Google Reader. Each person is listed in his reader and just like his regular feeds he can see when there is a new post someone in the office is sharing. This struck me as a great way to cut through a lot of clutter and read the most relevant and topical information. Because after all, even the most prolific reader can't possibly keep up with all the blog feeds in our industry. As Steve said, if someone in the office is sharing the post they obviously think it's worth reading.
What do you think? Do you use a reader? Have you tried the share feature?
