Google News now has Shareable Badges

Google+ debuted a couple weeks back, and it was only google’s first step in to social media. Last week Google announced a new feature for Google News.

The U.S. edition of Google News now has badges, and you can earn them based on how much you read. Google reports that there are over 500 different badges currently in the system, and they cover almost every nich imaginable. No matter what kind of news you’re into, there’s a badge out there for you.

Your badges are kept private by default, and you can change that if you want to share them. And before you can start collecting them, you’ll need to sign-in to a Google account and enable web history. Click here for more instructions.
