Google Reader Alternatives: Which One Is Best For You? 30 Tools To Choose From

Google Reader Alternatives: Which One Is Best For You? 30 Tools To Choose From | Content Curation World |

Robin Good's insight:

If you are still looking for a Google Reader alternative, I have put together a growing and useful reference of all the tools I have identified myself, that could be valid replacements when, on July 1st 2013, Google Reader will be retired.

So far there are over 30 tools that I have identified as valid alternatives to the original Google Reader.

I have not yet provided additional information, specs or comments for each tool I have put aside, as I have simply collected, after having verified each, those that were active and interesting enough for my needs.

P.S.: Google is closing down Reader because in my view, Google Now and Google+ replace fully all of the services offered by Reader while building the foundations for a social, community-based information ecosystem.

Full list:

P.S.: Feel free to suggest additional tools that should be part of this list in the comments.

Pas beaucoup de commentaires... mais comme toujours un joli travail de sélection de la part de Robin Good et quelques solutions que je ne connaissais pas !

Gerda van Doorn's comment, May 5, 2013 4:01 AM
Another possibility is Symbaloo, great for categorising.

News Discovery: 23 Alternatives to Google Reader

News Discovery: 23 Alternatives to Google Reader | Content Curation World |
So the really big news yesterday, outstripping that of a new Pope is the news that Google is Powering Down Google Reader, which for many people is a total disaster.
Robin Good's insight:

Phil Bradley, a long-time curator of some of the best information and resources for digital librarians, has just published a helpful guide to the available alternatives to soon-to-be-defunct Google Reader.

While many of the tools and apps mentioned, do not really have the same functionality and features that Google Reader offers, they are nonetheless interesting alternative options.

Among the ones listed by Phil, my vote of preference goes to Feedly and The Feed, two excellent tools to manage all of your RSS-based feeds.

But, there's also a new breed of RSS readers under disguise and these are the new curation and social publishing tools such as those from to Rebelmouse and, which not only allow you to do most everything you did in Google Reader but with the valuable addition of more visually interesting displays.

One notable absent from the alternatives mentioned is Bottlenose, a fantastic tool to find, monitor and discover relevant news online.

Very useful. Resourceful. 8/10

P.S.: Check Phil's original article and find in the comments two more tools I suggested.

Anyone still using Google Reader? I'm going to move over to Feedly but may look at what Google + offers to take Reader's place as well.
