Icon7 Google Reader – Going, going – GONE!


I clicked on Google Reader this morning to check the blogs I follow to be told it would be gone July 1st


Alternatives are available, see http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2...tives/1986865/


I checked out Feedly http://www.feedly.com and it quickly and easily transferred all my Reader feeds. Actually in a nicer format than Reader.


Another is Pulse https://www.pulse.me/ While I didn't log on, it appears to be quite user friendly.


A third is Flipboard @ http://flipboard.com/ It appears to be more for mobile devices than desktops.


And, of course Twitter @ https://twitter.com/ which I didn't even bother to check out.

I quit Feedly as it often doesn't show all my feeds and went to FeedDemon which appears to be like its own web browser.
