I loves me some RSS feeds. Being able to skip through headlines without any cumbersome graphics to slow things down is what I need. Google Reader is the RSS reader of the day. Its fast and easy to use. With Reeder on my iPhone and iPad and soon on my Mac I can look through a lot of material very quickly and identify topics of interest for me or my clients.
One glaring issue I have with Google Reader however is how it makes suggestions. When you find a new RSS feed that you want to add to reader you see this:
Now dont get me wrong I love me some suggestions and Google is really good at suggesting relevant feeds. The problem is that the suggestions show up before I have finalized the subscription to the original feed that I wanted. Once I click on the Subscribe button the suggestions no longer appear here. Instead you have to click on the Feed Settings button and mouse over More Like This to see this:
Once again I appreciate Google making these suggestions, but they are way too hidden for most users. Make this more visible please Google. I suggest showing them right after I Subscribe to a feed and then occasionally once a month or so.
