On the Radar: Friday, November 30th, 2007
Josh Lowensohn posts on Webware:
Google's RSS reader...got some handy updates last night. The most interesting of the bunch is a new recommendations system that will suggest feeds you might enjoy based on two things:
1. Feeds you're already subscribed to in Google Reader
2. Your Google Web history, including things you've searched for or sites you've visited from any Google search.
The recommendations show up on Reader's home page, and let you know how many subscribers each feed has to help gauge its popularity. You can also preview the feed before having to subscribe to it, similar to a try before you buy shopping model. Maybe the most helpful feature however, is the listing how many posts each blog averages per week--helping you avoid dreaded feed fatigue and RSS guilt.
