Feedly has long offered more sharing options than even the now defunct Google Reader, and today they added a slew of new options. The leading news reader service has just announced new integration with Zapier, a web automation service.
Like its better known competitor IFTTT, Zapier lets users create tasks that are carried out automatically. But unlike IFTTT with its extensive connections to social networks, Zapier focuses on business customers. It's a freemium service, with free users limited to only 5 tasks which can be run up to 100 times per month.
If you want to share a story privately to your colleagues, IFTTT offers connections to SalesForce Chatter and Yammer (also email). Zapier offers more connections to more business apps and services than IFTTT, including project management apps such as Asana, Basecamp, Trello and Podio, team communication tools such as HipChat, Slack, Campfire and Yammer, and task management apps such as Google Tasks and Todoist.
The Zapier sharing option is only available to Feedly Pro users. This $5 a month service includes better tech support, faster feed updates, search, and many more sharing options that what free users have. In addition to Zapier, Prop users can also share to LinkedIn, IFTTT, OneNote, EverNote, Buffer, and more.
