Google is removing social features of its Google Reader application in preparation of the RSS feed reader’s imminent integration with the Google+ social network, the company said Oct. 20. Google Reader lets users subscribe to receive links to content from some of their favorite news sources, including blogs and traditional publications. One the darlings of Internet geeks, RSS readers have been cast aside by more forward-looking digerati for Twitter and other real-time services, including Facebook and Google+. To that end, Google will retire friending, following and shared links to blogs in Reader, which like Google Search, Gmail and Maps before it, is also getting a brand-new design. That redesign will include tight integration with Google+, which the search engine provider is making the focal point of its social software tools.
