Eulogizing Google Reader and Other Discontinued Google Services [INFOGRAPHIC]
On July 1st, Google Reader went the way of many Google initiatives before it.

If you don’t have an alternative reader, some popular alternatives are Feedly, Digg Reader and The Old Reader, all which mimic the reading experience of Google Reader pretty faithfully. My personal favorite is paid service Feedbin which costs $2 per month to use (or $20 a year) but  allows you to set-up source attribution for easy sharing.

Let me know what you’re using as an alternative and what you think of this one.

I aspire to give people something to think about rather than tell them what to do. My favorite Google Alert is "social media research," I am increasingly compelled by Gen Z, and I appreciate good writers agnostic of where they write. At one time I was Kred's 12th most influential social media blogger and Klout's most influential person on the topic of David Hasselhoff. Transplant from Seattle living in Cincinnati. Haven't entirely adopted the local sports teams yet.
