At least that’s what Silvia Killingsworth says on The Awl: O Reader! My Reader
I disagree. Inoreader is way better than Google Reader ever was. Lately, I’m finding myself using Inoreader more and social media less.
Inoreader is a pay service. If you want something free, Feedly is very nice.
RSS was never hugely popular, and with the alternatives popping up in the aftermath of Reader’s demise, I wouldn’t be surprised to find that it’s more popular now than it was when Google Reader was around.
