A non digital marketing pal started used Blogger's new Follow feature to follow my blog. I thought I'd give it a go - it was very easy to set up, in particular you could simply import blogs from your Google Reader and easily make them as followed blogs.
Here's my beef with it - despite knowing I'd imported blogs from Google Reader the damn system still re-adds all those blogs as duplicates to my Google Reader.
The feature seems entirely redundant to me.
There's supposed to be a way to turn this off. You can use the Google Reader settings option to disable this.
It simply does not work, though. Despite de-selecting "Show followed blogs from Blogger" Google Reader still shows them.
Worse of all is the impact on Mobile Google Reader where (inconsistently) I'll have to surf through multiple headlines.
