Google Reader’s sharing features let you share items you’re labeling or starring with your friends. To enable sharing for one of your labels or your starred items, first click on the “Share” link above the reading window and then check the “Shared” checkbox next to a particular label. You’re then shown two different ways you can share:

Tell your friends. A unique URL is created that links to latest items with your shared label. You can post this link on the web or send it to your friends.
