Google Reader is going to shut down
My first reaction was NOOOO (Thank you Scott Stratten for the Instant No Button). I have been using Google Reader for years. I use it several times a day. What will I do now that Google is closing its RSS doors? I will try out new sites and services to meet my needs. Thankfully the market is prepared to react.
Sites that are quick to respond to the need include:
Upon Further Thought
The petition to keep Google Reader alive has reached 96,331 this morning. Only 24 hours after the announcement I am excited to see what the other services have to offer. There are two main feature sets that I am looking for.
RSS for Industry News and Research
In this category I need a new service to have easy buttons for me to share feeds with EverNote and Pocket.
RSS for Social Media Sharing
I need the new service to be able to easy share posts with Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+.
I wonder how this will effect services like zite that are based off Google reader ?
