Feedly PictureIf you are an avid user of Google Reader you have already seen the note that appears saying “Not available after July 1, 2013. Google notes “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”.

For some, this is bad news. For others, this is an opportunity. Enter Feedly. . .

Although Feedly has been around for a number of years they have had a rebirth. Since the announcement from Google about the demise (retirement) of Reader the Feedly site boasts that more than 3,000,000 have switched to Feedly. Read more on the Feedly blog HERE. So if you are looking for a new solution to “organize your favorite blogs, news sites, podcasts and YouTube channels and access them all in one place” Feedly is an option for you.

Google Reader? What will you be switching to for bundling your information?
