article imageUsers created a petition against the end of the Google Reader

By Telmo Neves     Mar 15, 2013 in Internet
Google has announced that Google Reader is going to be closed in July 2013. Users of this service created a petition in order to stop that to happen.
After the announcement of the end of Google Reader, scheduled for next July 1, users of RSS reading platform of Google decided to create an online petition. The protest, organized on the website Change.org, has more than 90,000 people registered at the moment of the writing of this article.
The petition was created by Dan Lewis, a resident of New York. In the description of the petition, a kind of a open letter to Google, the boy spoke about his long relationship with this service in recent years and asked the company to don't end up with the service.
Dan Lewis wrote the following:
"Our reliance on Google products like Gmail, YouTube and even Google+, shows that trust you and know that you understand that use its products every day. This is not the only data we have on the Reader. It's about the product we use because we love you, because it makes our life better and because we believe that you will not abandon him. So, please do not destroy that trust, "
Created in 2005, Google Reader, according to Urs Holzle, vice president of the company's infrastructure and who signed the note on the company blog that confirmed the end of the service, "has faithful followers, but over time its use has fallen." At first, there seems that there is no chance that Google will change its minds in relation to its RSS reader despite the protests of users.
