The search for Google Reader alternatives is well underway – for those who do not have one already. This follows from Google’s latest announcement that the service will be shut down after July 1, 2013.
Google Reader is a Google service I abandoned a few years ago after trying it out for about 2 months. It just didn’t fit the way I consume that type of service. I chose to go with a local (desktop) alternative after that trial period, and I have been using desktop alternatives ever since.
