0 Digg to build a reader to replace Google reader

The news about Google shutting down its reader created much fuzz over the net. I have read many articles indicating alternatives for Google reader. There has also been some petitions about saving Google reader by few sites. One site that got its attention is change.org which already crossed 100,000 signature mark within 48 hours of  its submission. Their is also a site being created for saving Google reader called keepgooglereader.com which has been started on 13th march 2013. They said if Google is not interested in keeping the reader alive then at least make the script open source so that they could run their own readers. Mean while one of the famous social bookmarking site Digg which had a make over few months back has announced that they are going to build an alternative for Google reader. Digg has officially announced this news in their blog that they are building a reader. They also got a heavy response and there have been 700 plus comments already posted.

They said they already had a project on building a reader but now this project became their top priority as soon as Google announced its news on shutting down reader. Below are few lines posted in their blog

We’ve heard people say that RSS is a thing of the past, and perhaps in its current incarnation it is, but as daily (hourly) users of Google Reader, we’re convinced that it’s a product worth saving. So we’re going to give it our best shot. We’ve been planning to build a reader in the second half of 2013, one that, like Digg, makes the Internet a more approachable and digestible place. After Google’s announcement, we’re moving the project to the top of our priority list. We’re going to build a reader, starting today.
There are already plenty of Google reader alternatives like Netvibes, Newsblur, Feedly, FeedReader, and Bloglines. We have to wait and see whether Digg could reach the expectations of its fans. Will it be able to create a good and most comprehensive reader?
