Google Reader Being Axed??

Let me get this straight. Google has up and decided to kill the Google Reader service only because it doesn't make any money? Are they serious? I don't make any money by writing on this blog. I mean I could if I wanted to but it would be like someone paying me to write in my diary. I depend on Google Reader and have for a few years to get my messages out to my readers and they want to kill it? I mean out of the blue they decide to axe it and don't bother to let us at least discuss it or have some say in the matter? It's enough to make a person boil over when they depend on a service to make them better and make it easier for the readers to follow a certain blog. Correct me if I'm wrong on this please.

If I recall, the Friend Connect is powered through and works with Google Reader. Will that be axed too? I don't know but I intend to find out. From what I have read so far, Google decided to axe Google Reader to get more people and bloggers to integrate into the Google+ social network. The thing is, I do that already and have done that since it first came out. I use a couple different readers and feeds to get my messages out. I basically don't understand Google wanting to axe something that is very popular on many networks for so many people around the world. When someone finds out why, instead of just a money issue kind of thing as being the sole reason, would you please bonk me in the head and tell me please?

Happy Trails!
