Send your Google Reader favorites to all your Social Media websites

Google Reader’s Send To feature allows you to share your favorite Google Reader feed items to your favorite Social Media sites.


Google Reader team introduced a fantastic feature, “Send To”, which allows you to share your favorite Google Reader feed items across all your favorite Social Media sites. With just a single click you can now Tweet your favorite story, submit the story to StumbleUpon, share it with your friends at Facebook and you imagine the possibilities. This is one of the feature I was wishing for a long while now.

You don’t have to do much, except to enable it on the Google Reader Settings.

Sign-in to Google Reader and click on the “Settings” link at the top-right side of the page.

Click on the “Send To” tab. There you’ll see a pre-populated list of some of the Social Media websites. Check the ones that you want to send your favorite feed items to.

Once you do that and when you refresh your Google Reader page you’ll see a “Send To” option on each feed item. When you click on it you’ll see a dropdown list of the Social Media sites that you chose on the Settings page. You might have to disable your browser’s pop-up blocker to make use the “Send To” feature.

Clicking on an item on the “Send To” menu will do the appropriate action. Keep in mind that most of the actions will open up a new page for you to finish the action. I wish Google Reader team does enhance this to have us finish the action without navigating to a new page. That would be awesome.
