It's completely obvious that 3 services of Google including: Reader, Plus and Buzz should be combined soon. Because they have their own users and it divide the cloud of users and resources in not well form hierarchy.
But we hope that this change doesn't affect the quality of your service. The old Google Reader social network has not rival in web. Neither Facebook nor Twitter or any other ones couldn't stand against Reader.
I as an Iranian Google Reader fan, want you to mention your users opinion and feedback in your new service, so that all users can easily switch to it and get use of it as well.
I believe that there is no solution like Reader on the web. Almost all of my active Facebook friends joined the Reader because I shared my favorite items there and name the source as GODER.
The Iranian Google Reader's fans have registered a domain as: goder.ir
so that others can reach it and use it easily.
At the end I request you to analyze all aspects of changes before deploying.
And I appreciate your efforts and supports.
I hope the new generation evolve the Google Reader as a unique Social Network Solution.
