Google Reader to do away with friending, following and shared link blogs for deeper Google+ integration

Google Reader something that many of us use everyday to read RSS feeds of blogs and websites has some major changes coming up. During the course of the following week Google Reader will be retiring things like retiring things like friending, following and shared link blogs inside of Reader. Google Reader is going to get deeper Google+ integration for easier sharing with all your circles and for those who want to share with other networks like your favorite social sites there will be Share To available. 

With this new Google+ integration announced on the Official Google Reader blog, the service is set for a complete makeover. If you would like to keep and export your old data you can do so with import/export feature. So the old Google Reader that really looks old with get a new look and a whole lot of social features courtesy of Google+. 

On their official blog we read this about the new Google Reader.

We think the end result is better than what's available today, and you can sign up for Google+ right now to start prepping Reader-specific circles. We recognize, however, that some of you may feel like the product is no longer for you. That's why we will also be extending Reader's subscription export feature to include the following items. Your data belongs to you, after all, and we want to make sure you can take it with you. 

  • Your subscriptions

  • Your shared items

  • Your friends

  • Your likes

  • Your starred items
