Feedly Adds Topic Exploration

Feedly is one of my favorite services, not only does it offer a highly polished presentation layer that makes reading my subscriptions more pleasing but it has a nice set of social features for sharing content and with their latest release a really compelling set of search and topic exploration features.

If you have been reading my stuff over the last few years you will know that one of my big criticisms of existing feed readers and content services is that they are very good at presenting sources that you already know exist, very poor at finding the best content, not just the most popular, for any given category or topic.

Feedly has now moved into content discovery in a major way, leveraging their substantial installed base and ability to capture and analyze metadata related to content sources and individual posts. As much as I liked this service before, I love it now…
