Google Reader Coda: Will It Become Social Media?

Lynne Kiesling

Apparently I’m not the only one musing on the relationship between social media and RSS readers. Since I wrote the previous post, this Ars Technica post has suggested that Google will fold Reader into Google+.

To which I respond: Meh. Too social. Too visual. Not mobile friendly because it uses too much screen space (disclosure: Eli Dourado said the same to me on Twitter, and I concur). Not easy to either scan or dig deep or put aside for later. Meh.

  1. Hi, folks. I just stumbled across this blog whilst searching for information about the unfortunate demise of Google Reader. As it happens, I’m interested in the themes discussed on this blog and I look forward to reading the posts. Thanks for taking the time to blog.
