Popular site Digg announced that it plans to replace Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Reader.
The company says the blog post received more than 800 comments. In a statement, the company said, “That’s more than we received when we told the world we were rebuilding Digg itself. It’s also proof that Google Reader users (and RSS devotees in general) are rabid information addicts with strong opinions.”
While the company hasn’t set a specific date for the release of its new reader, it has hinted that it wants it up and running before Google shuts down its own popular service in a few months.
