Groovy Google Tutorials, News Articles, Tips, How-To, Help, And Answers

Google Reader is an excellent way to keep up-to-date on the latest news and topics that interest you leveraging feeds.  When you’re feeling social, you can also use to spread the word on articles that you feel are groovy enough to share on your favorite Social Media sites like FaceBook, Twitter, Stumbleupon and more!

 

It’s simple using the Send To feature. You can now select a broad range of places to send your Google Reader entries.  The great part about this is you no longer have to visit your favorite social networking site and manually enter the URL and description of the content.  Google Reader will automatically do this for you once you select where you want to send/share it.

1.   Sign into your Google Account, then visit the URL http://www.google.com/reader/.  Once there, Click the Settings link.

    Vs. Outlook, yeah it's going to be light on features. Vs. Other free
    products however like outlook express or windows live mail, I think
    the review is valid and Thunderbird is worth a look.

    Personally, I'm still aging with the free outlook 2010 beta which is
    free for another 10 months or so. 🙂

    Great tutorial Dexter. Thanks for sharing this information.

    I had a question about sharing articles to facebook via the Google Reader Mobile site. I preformed the steps above, but am still unable to “Send To” via google reader on my iPhone.

    I’ll keep searching!

    Thanks,
    Erik
