Using Google Reader's "Send To" feature with Diigo

I use Google Reader for keeping track of blogs and news. For bookmarks, I use Diigo.

Google Reader just added a "Send To" feature that allows you to send the link of a news item to Twitter, Facebook, Delicious, etc. Diigo is not on the list. However, it is possible to add your own "Send To" targets.

For Diigo, this is the recipe:

  • Go to "Settings" in Google Reader

  • Go to the "Send To" tab

  • Click the "Create a custom link" button

  • Specify the following details

    • Name: Diigo

    • URL:${url}

    • Icon URL:

  • Click "Save"

Now, you can post an entry in Google Reader to Diigo using the "Send to" link in the bottom of each item.
