The death of Google Reader

Google Reader has less than 4 months of life left. This morning I sadly read Google decision of closing down his RSS feed service on 1st of July as part of his spring cleaning when some other Google services will be shut down. It has been a controversial decision that has very likely been motivated for lack of profit rather than lack of users and to give more space to its social beloved search that never seems to take off, Google+.

Sadness apart, is time for us to move on and think what to do with all those invaluable blogs collected over the time.

Thankfully the process is easy:

1. Login to your Google Reader account. You will see a pop-up like the one below confirming the day of its dead.


Notification from Google


2. If you click on “learn more” it will take you to this page. Now click on the “Click here” to download your info from Google Reader.
