For example? We’ve been reviewing (and trying) all of the replacements we’ve seen but so far we haven’t found any replacement that offers the same tagging features as Google Reader. And that’s where you come in. We’ll share more about what we’re looking for in a Google Reader alternative, and if you’ve found one that fits the bill, let us know!
What We Love (And Want) In A Google Reader Alternative
Google Reader supports tags – which, for those who may not be aware, are a way to categorize your feeds with a word or short phrase that means something to you. In Google Reader, tags are given a unique RSS feed, which allows you to take that unique RSS feed and drop it into a third-party service like Dlvr.it.
Why are tags such a time saver? For those of us on the V3 team, it allows us to “batch block” our reading time with the endless stream of posts in our RSS reader and have the posts (that are worth sharing) hit our Twitter stream in intervals through the support of Dlvr.it. After all, no one wants to share all the great content they find all at once—and we can bet our Twitter followers don’t care for a constant deluge of links, either.
Now that you know what we’re looking for, we need your help! If you’ve found a RSS reader that has the same tagging feature combined with the ability for those individual tags to have a unique RSS feed, we’d love to know. Spill the beans and we’ll be eternally grateful!
