Modelled on Google Reader, you’ll find many great features similar to Feedly and the WordPress.com reading experience.

Most importantly, Reader encourages your users to engage with sites across your network, without having to leave their site.

Download Reader and let us know in the comments below what you think about the plugin’s stunning features.

Reader: A Beautiful Reading Experience

We originally developed Reader for users at Edublogs.org, where more than 2 million blogs have been using the plugin since early June.

For Edublogs users, Reader is especially useful for teachers and students publishing on multiple blogs. For example, a teacher who manages more than 100 student blogs can easily moderate posts and comments directly from Reader. The teacher can also encourage students to follow their classmates blogs in Reader, right from within the WordPress dashboard.

The beauty of Reader is that it’s not just about encouraging users to stay up-to-date – Reader helps foster community across your Multisite network by allowing users to quickly and easily engage with posts and interact with other users.
