Previously, Gizbot reported that Google will be shutting down Reader RSS service. The search giant was simply not satisfied with traffic it was receiving. The service will no longer be available from July 1 and has become a bit of disappointment to many who still religiously use the service.
Just because Google is shutting down Reader RSS, doesn't mean there are no alternatives. Flipboard, Pulse, Feedly are some of the popular services that can be used instead. There is also news that Facebook may be is also believed to be working on a similar service. Developer Tom Waddington found mentions of RSS feeds in Facebook's Graph API code. The code schema was found linked to a user's Facebook ID and was also found to cover aspects such as title, URL and update time. Each RSS feed was found to have entries and subscribers.
Tom said he tried to to run this new code through Facebook's Graph API Explorer, the results came up as restricted.
Does this mean that the social network giant is looking to start things off, from where Google ended it? Facebook already is famous for it's news feed feature, there would be no surprise if it integrates RSS feed into the feature. Digg is also known to be working on a alternative to the Google New Reader too. There is a classic saying that says " One man's loss is a other man's gain"!
