Google Reader adds Shared Comments

It was just a matter of time... and, in my humble oppinion, inevitable. Google's popular online feed reader Google Reader now has a much needed new feature: shared comments.

Sure, there will be a lot of talk about it in the following days/weeks: "Will it keep people from commenting on the original blog itself?"

Well, nothing new... the same was said about the RSS feeds.

The thing is: it's one thing to comment on a blog, for the world to see; and a completely different thing to talk about it in a closer circle of friends.

It's different, and one thing doesn't exclude the other.

People already do that in other social places, like twitter and facebook, so... why not on Google Reader as well?

I think it's a smart move, and I certainly appreciate it. Thanks, Google Reader team.
