About this feed

We have been over the last 18 months building a rich directory of all the blogs the feedly users subscribe to. The about this feed module surfaces some of the information we have been aggregating for each blog.

The subscribers count will give you an idea of the “popularity” of the feed.

The buzz rank will give you an idea of the engagement (likes, tweets, comment, sharing) taking place around the articles published by the blog.

The tags will help you find other similar blogs.


The fans module helps surface some of the users who are engaging the most with the content published by the associated feed. If you click on the profile picture, you can see the list of the other blogs the user is recommending the most, organized by topics.

Helping users discover new sources is a key part of the feedly value proposition. This is a baby step towards using social dynamics to help support discovery. A lot more to come in 6.0 and 7.0.

    1. Hi Thomas, you should see a fans section on the right hand side on any individual feed page which includes user engagement (likes, tweets, etc…)

  1. Is there any chance that the iframe and automatic inclusion of text-highlighting to share via Twitter or Google appears again ? This is one of the best features that disappeared from Feedly. Now, too many pop-up and copy and paste required to effectively share. This has greatly slowed my use Feedly for my navigation. : /

    And why have you separated the “like”and the sharing function (and comments) from Google Reader?

  2. fail to “Connect your feedly to your twitter account to see an overview of the best articles shared by your friends”.

    don’t refresh and not appear status!!!

    feedly is the best.

  3. Hello
    How can one be selected as top fans?I don’t want to be selected as top fans
    How can one create a profile ? is it the same as Google Reader profile ?
    How can I don’t share anything (my profile , recommended source and …) with others?

  4. When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added
    I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me
    from that service? Kudos!
