GReader Shared Items Question

I was going over that RSS presentation I did a few weeks ago with someone who couldn’t make it to the event yesterday at lunch, and an interesting question came up. I talked about how I use delicious.com as my shared items because it lets me use various tags, and each tag then has it’s own RSS feed, which I can republish elsewhere. Currently, I use that feature to push out items tagged as tech, photography or litsupport to the various sections of my site, all in an attempt to allow folks to pick and choose what kinds of stuff they want to follow.

I noticed, however, that Google Reader does let you “tag” items, so I would think they would possibly be stored that way on your shared items site, but does anyone know if they provide a way to get separate RSS feeds for the tags, apart from the one big “shared items” feed?

I have to admit, I’ve never used the Shared Items feature in Google Reader, so I don’t know much about it.

I also promise to get off this kick of asking questions on my own blog soon, and writing something more informative. 🙂

    You can assign tags to each shared item, and each of your tags can have their own public or private RSS feeds. You can even set up Delicious to auto import certain tags from Google Reader.

    Kevin, thanks for the info. I may have to investigate how that all works and see if it changes my recommendations. 🙂
