I just got notified today that Google will be pulling the plug on their RSS feed reader.

According to Google, its the declining usage of this popular Rich Site Summary (originally RDF Site Summary, often dubbed Really Simple Syndication) reader that led them to stop the service and focus on other products.

There are two simple reasons for this: usage of Google Reader has declined, and as a company we’re pouring all of our energy into fewer products. We think that kind of focus will make for a better user experience.

My oh my oh my….  I never imagined this would happen. I am a heavy user of Google reader. This is where I read news and updates for  topics that I have subscribed to in Google Alerts (They might shut it down also).

Now I am looking for Google Reader alternatives. I like Feedly.com. Also for my Android phone, I can use Google Currents or Flipboard.

Google will let you download your Google Reader data here. Google is giving Google Reader fans three months to export your data.

UPDATE:

It looks like Feedly is the most visited site as alternative to Google Reader.
