Google Reader Adds More (Cluttering?) Social Features

Google’s feed reader, Google Reader, added a couple of social options, but Google-watcher Ionut is not convinced:

For more than a year, Google Reader has been struggling to add social features and almost all the new features were contrived ...

Google Reader became more difficult to use as the new features cluttered the interface and forced you to make more decisions. Now you have to decide if you want to star an item or just “like” it, if you want to share an item or share it with a note, if you want to follow the people who are following you.
