How to find someones Google Reader Shared items
Posted by: Jure Cuhalev In: Tech
One of the things most social media junkies do substantial amount of time is read their peers rant about world and give useful hints and ideas. Since there are too many of us out there, there’s a neat trick you can do: piggy back on best stories from someone else.
The way to do this is to figure out if your personal hero is using Google Reader and sharing his or hers picks with the world. There are a number of strategies to get to their RSS feed of shared stories:
- by asking them directly, either in person or via Twitter. Shows that you really care and that you’re willing to proper stalk them and their interests.
- find them on FriendFeed and see if they’ve imported their stories. You can then get their feed url from there and just add it to your Google Reader.
- read/search their blog and they’re going to eventually post the address. It’s also often hidden in blogroll or on a side of blog.
If anyone is interested, my shared feed is also available. Beware that their might be cute kittens hidden in there.
Are you sharing? Post you share feed address in comments so we can benefit from collective crowd-sharing.
