I know this is going to freak you out but, did you know that some of your friends and family don’t actually use an RSS reader? I know, I was shocked too – next we’ll learn that some people still have newspapers delivered!
Anyway, in an effort to help those that don’t have a feed reader (or those that think email is simply just a lot better for sharing news), Google Reader has introduced a new feature that will allow you to share items via email.
Clicking the “Email” link at the bottom of an item gives you the ability to:
- send email from within Reader — no more second window for sending email.
- send the entire item as it appears in Reader, including formatting and images.
- use your Gmail address book (if you have one) to add contacts with auto-complete.
