Web

Once dead social startup Digg today announced plans for a Google Reader replacement, after conducting a massive user survey.

The software will see a June beta release but te company also said the final product might not be free, unlike Google's ubiquitous RSS software.

Following Google's announcement that it would be killing off Reader as of July 1, Digg said that it would take it upon itself to fill the gap with its own RSS service.

The company conducted multiple surveys on discovery and reading features, as well as "more ancillary features like read later and sharing."
