The CNet coverage misses a few things about the ability to hide feed information from groups.  If I subscribe to the all nudie chicks all the time feed I might want to hide that from Mom, and if I subscribe to the Great Jobs in silicon valley feed I might want to hide that from my co-workers, and if I frequent the my little pony forums I might want to hide that from my friends.
