Google Reader retires

In a blog post yesterday Google announced that Google Reader would retire on 1st July 2013. It said they wanted to focus on fewer products to improve the user experience, as well as highlighting that the number of people using Google Reader has declined recently.

Obviously Google Reader is not the only RSS reader but it does make one think about the future of RSS feeds. Do you think they will be used in, say, five years’ time?
