100,000 sign petition to save Google Reader

100,000 sign petition to save Google Reader
Just the other day, we told to you how Google had decided to shut down RSS Feed Google Reader due to declining use. At the same time, Google admitted that the service still had a loyal following. Some of those loyal followers have started petitions in an attempt to get Google to change its mind. While there are about a dozen petitions on Change.org, one in particular has collected a rather impressive 104,000 signatures.

This one petition was able to garner all of those signatures in just two days, although it is probably not nearly enough names to convince Google to keep Reader alive. Frankly, it might take a petition with about 1 million names to get Google to re-think the closing. In the meantime, if you're interested in putting your John Hancocok on that petition, click on the sourcelink.

If you have been using a mobile version of Google Reader and will need a replacement, keep on an eye on Feedly as it works on copying Google Reader's API.

Eh. I'm sure Google is still going to axe it no matter what. The most they will probably do is shut the service down a little later than planned.

For me, its rather impossible without Google coz all my internet life is based on its products as it is the most synchronized than any other platform.

Just think what we really could accomplish if we cared this much about real issues.
