Ugh! Has everyone heard that Google Reader is closing down in July? What?!? I thought it was awesome that everything I needed was somehow connected to my Google Account. It made everything soooo easy to keep track of. Now they are closing down Reader. I can’t believe the company thinks that will be beneficial! I actually started using Google because of Reader.
I have been trying out two other services.
BlogLovin has a similar format and you can easily import your Google Reader connections. The site automatically accesses and organizes what you already have. So far, I am liking this site lot. The learning curve is much smaller – which is good when there are so many other things to do!
The other site I started with was Netvibes. This site has more viewing options than Google Reader and BlogLovin. You can set it up to look more like an iPad, with tiles. I found it a bit more challenging to navigate, but it does the job.
What are you switching to when Google Reader shuts down?
