    2. 2. WHAT IT IS • acts as a “favorites” or bookmarking tool where users can easily access their favorite websites • checks favorite sites/blogs for new and updated content • a single space where your favorites can be organized and viewed any time you can access your Gmail account • includes an integrated feed search that allows you to access and find shared articles, people you know, and notes/tags
    3. 3. SHARING • Each item has a sharing icon, which enables users to share articles, sites and tabs with friends. • Sharing icon will have the article appear on your public page as well. • Add customizable displays of your shared items on your website or blog.
    4. 4.

    5. 5. Within your account, choose Reader from the menu at the top. Is it strictly web based or does one need to download and install software? It is strictly web based, there is no software that you need to install.   Is it easy to set up an account and are there different levels? It is very easy to set up an account, all that is required is an email address and a password. All of Google Reader’s features are free; there is no paid account level.
