They changed the Reader. The one place where I could share stuff without having to think of social consequences (Read over-spilling my interestes onto other’s news feeds).
The UI earlier would confine my shares to Google Reader itself, so consequentially the result was the sharing and viewing of interesting articles and information minus the social drama.
But alas, the ‘Share on reader’ button has now been ditched.
In it’s place we now have an obnoxious ‘G+’ button. No more is Reader an entity in itself. It now stands more as an integration feeding into G+. A route Google seems to be going with it’s ecosystem in general. (At least the new G+ revamp would seem to suggest so).
I’m not a privacy freak, but somethings should just be left alone and not be over social-ised!
