Retrieve a feed that lists the people who have recommended a blog posting.
To get a list of recommenders, complete the following steps:
1. Retrieve the blog entry that you want to recommend. See Retrieving blog posts.
2. In the returned entry document, find the <app:collection> element that has a child <title> element with a value of Recommendations, and then send a GET request to the web address defined in the href attribute of that element.

If done properly, you will create a feed that lists the names of the people who have recommended the blog posting.
