Great. Yet another reason why you’ll be spending more time on Google Reader (I know I will!).

Google is adding a little bit of magic to the popular RSS reader that will (through some voodoo, no doubt) figure out what you really, really like to read and pull it out for you.

We use algorithms to find top-rising images, videos and pages from anywhere (not just your subscriptions), collect them in the new Popular items section and order them by what we think you’ll like best. Now you don’t have to be embarrassed about missing that hilarious video everyone is talking about — it should show up in your “Popular items” feed automatically.
