With the recent neutering of Google reader's sharing capabilities, one of the main draws of using google reader has vanished.

Is there a desktop RSS replacement that can import a list of feeds exported from google reader and import shared items from google plus?

I have written a yahoo pipe to substitute sharing, so I'm interested in readers that perform this task as an internal operation (optimally with oAuth authentication into g+ to access more than simply public shared items.)

Currently Google+ only has an API to read public posts ( ), which isn't that helpful. There currently is no RSS feed for a user in Google+. Until one of those two happen you aren't going to find an RSS reader that supports Google+.

Google reader and Google+ are two completely different products. – tgm4883 Dec 28 '12 at 16:34
