Google Says It's Making Reader More Fun

Google Reader

Google yesterday announced a few updates to Google Reader. The company tried to throw in some cool lingo to make the announcement sound better than it was, but let’s face it — how excited can you really get about putting your feeds in alphabetical order?

According to the company, sharing is now available to friends across the globe. Prior to this announcement, it was only available in the US. To improve Notes, Google also added tagging to help you organize your posts. To round out the improvements, Google will now let you put your feeds in alphabetical order if dragging and dropping isn’t for you via an “Options” menu at the bottom of the window and has information in the “details” section to let you know when it last crawled a feed.

All these features are available now in Google Reader.
