When Google Reader’s team came back on Monday, they found more than 70 complaints in their public forum. Given Google’s fine reputation dealing with their users privacy people were expecting a quick fix and some kind of apology, but the official response was appalling. As one user said "wow. this is a politician’s answer....i.e. answers that don’t address our specific questions/complaints".

More than one week has passed, and there still is no acceptable stop to this private data leak caused by the new Google Reader "feature".

How are items that someone’s decided to share publicly and which weren’t written by them considered "private"?

I would have thought people had close friends, general friends, associates, and people you just need to email every so often - making it default to show every to all does seem to suggest a remarkable lack of understanding of human behaviour.2c.

How are items that someone’s decided to share publicly and which weren’t written by them considered "private"? my friends don’t need to know that I subscribe to "Poodles-doing-double-dutch dot com**....just cause society has placed a stigma on watching small dogs jump rope.**don’t try and go there it doesn’t exist.... on a side note: if anyone has a couple of poodles, a jump rope and a video cam....drop me a line; I just had a flash of brilliance ;)
