Google Reader may not be the most exciting feature but it sure is useful. It is slated to be shut down on July 1, 2013. Please don't shut it down!

Many of us use Google Reader on a daily basis to keep track of our favorite blogs, archive tweets, keep updated on specific craigslist searches, and for many other uses.  Its simplicity is its strength.  Feel free to share how you use Google Reader in the comments!

      Petitions beg Google to reconsider closure of Reader

      Within a few hours of the announcement of the RSS reader's retirement, thousands sign petitions asking that the Web giant save the service. Google's decision to sunset its Google Reader has proved a wildly unpopular one, and users of the RSS reader have turned to popular medium for affecting change: the online petition.

      I use Google reader frequently, please don't shut it down! If Google does this I will make a point of using other search engines whenever possible. Thank you for your consideration of my concerns.
