Wag of the Spoon: Google What?!

Okay if you are a regular reader, you know how much I LOVE Google Reader.  

Seriously, I've written about it:
and of course sporadically throughout the blog.
So it is with a VERY heavy heart that I write this post.


Today's Wag of the Spoon is devoted to Google Reader.

Google recently made a ton of new changes to their plethora of sites.  Good for them for attempting to streamline.

But during this process, when they attacked Google Reader with this fancy clean new appearance, they did away with one of my favorite aspects of Reader.


Dear Google

I understand that it's likely that you did away with sharing because you want people to use Google+ and that most likely, if I hit that little +1 on the article, it'll go to my Google+ and show all of my silly circle friends.

And I might be whining about this but I don't care.  I liked it the way it was.  Period.  Plain and simple.

And all of my friends who converse with me through comments on our Readers all feel the same way.

So, there.  Here's your Wag of the Spoon, Google.  Shame on you for "fixing" something that ain't broke.

  1. And don't forget that if you DO share to Google+, and people comment, it doesn't move that article up in the queue for easy catch-up on your comments all at once. I'm truly disappointed with this new Google Reader.

    As a side note, the new email is horrendous, and I left feedback letting Google know it's cartoonish and childish looking.
