I’ve been testing several feeds in the last weeks and came to the conclusion that for me the most useful feed has following parameters:
20 – Most Recent – Min Share 7 – English (for me off course)
The cool thing about this feed is, that everytime a story hits 7 shares Google Reader grabs it and since it’s Most Recent you will not get week old stories. The noise is very low, it’s about 20 stories a day and if ReadBurner gets more traction you can raise the min share parameter.
What kind of feed settings do you like the most? I want to make something like a HotFeed.
