So, how has the announcement of Google Reader closing its doors this coming July 1st affected you so far? We do know that Digg wants to create their own RSS reader, and another alternative RSS reader out there would be Feedly. The thing is, Feedly has certainly benefited from Google Reader’s impending demise, where they managed to gain another half a million new users in just two days. Yes sir, 500,000 new users in a mere 48 hours.
Other substitutes in place of Google Reader, apart from Feedly, of course, and they include Flipboard and Newsblur. Of course, none of these will be a precise replacement to Google Reader, where each would be a decent replacement. Of course, with such a huge influx of new users on Feedly, the company’s main priority at the point in time, or at least, the next 30 days, would be to ensure that the service remains up and running, without running into any obstacles or hiccups. According to Feedly, they are proud to say that Google Reader users are able to migrate seamlessly to its service when July 1st rolls around.
