Google Reader & Following Blogs
This week's internet buzz surrounded the announcement that Google is abandoning Google Reader. I have a minor in Computer Science, taught programming with C++ and have no idea what this announcement means! To stay current on the blogs I follow, I use the blog roll that appears on the right side of my blog. It's updated whenever someone posts something new to their blog. Rarely do I sign in to Google and check out the "reader area."
I have questions!
1. If Google Reader is closing, does that mean my blog roll won't be updated?
2. I've noticed a few people switch to Bloglovin'. What's that? =)
3. Has anyone tried Google Takeout - the application that's supposed to let you save the names/links of people you follow and that follow you?
