Google left a hole in the net that hasn't been filled yet (alas, hivemined).
Something's emerging to fill that space. It's not Google Reader Share; but you can still see the shape emerging.
IFTTT is the glue that ties things together. Buffer and Pinboard are the note capture mechanisms. Buffer has more style, but Pinboard has the essential structure (title, link, comment) and it's willing to accept cash. App.net is the wild card; a rapidly evolving set of services that may be the foundation for future solutions (see app.net #googlereadershare)
I still miss GoogleReaderShare, but I'm curious to see what will come next.
