Google Reader Closes Down Today

A very sad demise of Google Reader is being done today. Google has already announced in March that it will power down its Reader services on July 1, 2013. Google gave its Reader users 3 months to transfer their data through alternative RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed-reading platforms. Although none of these is like Google Reader. Also many new reader services are being announced and one is actually being launched. Yes it is the Digg Reader. While AOL is also going to launch its own AOL Reader as replacement of Google Reader.

Why Google take this decision? According to the social media giant, there are two clear reasons for that.

  1. Google Reader is not being used now by so many people as it was before.
  2. Google wants to focus on delivering new products in the market according to user demand.

Whatever the reason may be, but it is a very sad day today. Thankfully there are many other RSS reader services available now as alternatives like Google Takeout, Feedly and Digg Reader. But all these services are just the alternatives of Google Reader and you cannot take these as Google Reader replacements. As of yet now, no alternative RSS feed service provide you Google Reader like functionality and experience. We can just hope to see it in future as many has to come like AOL Reader and more.
