Im not sure about you, but I use Google Reader a lot. Back in March, Google announced that Google Reader will be discontinued on July 1, 2013. Although it seems to have a large user base, it isn’t large enough for Google to keep developing and supporting it.
Here’s the official statement from Google’s 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.
