Video of the New Bloglines
The video is hosted on YouTube and the direct link is:
I tried viewing the video on my iPhone and the writing is so small that I can’t read anything about it, so it is best viewed on a regular computer screen.
As far as I can tell from the MerchantCircle blog most of the features they mention seem to pretty standard and were already a part of Bloglines (at least I think they were). The feature that I definitely know is new is they have integrated Facebook and Twitter sharing so it looks like Valerie’s opinion that the “new design looks like the Netvibes reader with a different skin to it,” is pretty accurate.
Adding the Facebook and Twitter component was/is crucial to me, I have really grown to love that feature in Netvibes and I think that makes sharing stories between the three systems (Facebook, blogs, Twitter) that much easier and cohesive. Now that I know the new Bloglines will have this feature, it definitely makes it worth it to me to look at moving back. We will see.
