Google Reader's New Bundles Make Sharing Feeds User Friendly

You might be a master of your feed reader and the nuances of RSS, but what if importing an OPML file is out of your friend’s comfort range? Google Reader’s Bundle feature makes sharing simple.

Creating a bundle of your feeds to share is as simple as dragging and dropping. When logged into Google Reader click on the “Browse for stuff” link in the left hand navigation panel. On the right hand side of the screen is a column for bundles, click the “Create a bundle” button. From there you’ll see the bundle creation tool, as seen in the screenshot above. Scroll through your subscription list, adding feeds with a simple drag and drop. If you want to remove a feed from the bundle just drag it to the trash can. You can assign a title and description to the bundle and specify whether or not you want it added to your Shared items section. When you save the bundle you’ll be given three links for emailing the bundle, putting a link on your website, or downloading the OPML file. Google Reader Bundles make it easy to share the great content you’ve gathered with friends, even the ones who glaze over when you start talking in acronyms.
