Google announced last week that Google Reader is closing down. The Web-based RSS feed reader will be history on July 1, 2013, which means you’ve got a little more than three months to move those Google Reader subscriptions to a new RSS reader.
In this video, I’ll show you exactly how to do that, using Takeout, Google’s way of providing your information in a format you can take with you to other programs. I’ll turn my Google Reader subscriptions into a file that I can then use with different RSS readers. And I’ll show you how to get your information into other services like Feedly and The Old Reader.
