From the Google Blog…
We launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. While the product has a loyal following, over the years usage has declined. So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months.
First they announced they are killing iGoogle and now FeedReader?
Just a few days ago I wrote that I was going to start using my feed reader differently.
I wonder if Yahoo or Microsoft has a good alternative? (seriously)
At what point do we throw our arms up and leave the all mighty Google?
Do you use a FeedReader? Have a good substitute?
Can you tell I’m not happy?
UPDATE: I found a very large petition and signed it.
The petition is averaging 3,570 signatures an hour which equates to a signature every second.
