Google Reader Begins Sharing Private Data

wandernotlost wtf? (313 comments)

The headline and summary of this article are not only false, but probably illegal slander. In no way can the sharing of "shared" data be considered "sharing private data," whether or not some users fooled themselves into thinking it was private. If anything, this is a benevolent move on Google's part because it makes users more aware of the fact that data they are explicitly making public is, in fact, public.

So fuck you, Slashdot, for lying to me and wasting my time.
