Google went and broke Google Reader!

A very nice feature of Google Reader (my RSS reader of choice) was that there was a simple button at the bottom of each article called “Share”, and the current URL would be added to a list of shared articles and an RSS feed could be created of that list!

The breadcrumbs feature on my web page relied on that; as I read things, if I wanted to make them show up in breadcrumbs, all I did was to hit the Share button. If I visited some random URL and wanted to share that, I used the “Note in Reader” bookmarklet. All very good. Till Google went and broke it.

Now all I get is this:

This sucks!
