When google reader died, a lot of people put some stock in a replacement called NewsBlur.
A big cool thing about google reader was it’s social aspect - you could follow people and share stories etc. great way to discover stuff outside your lane or otherwise see the best of a blog you wouldn’t follow.
One of the first requests to NewsBlur iirc was a similar social function. That was added.
The second request was the ability to block people. That was never added.

This toot brought to you by my burning desire to launch a NewsBlur commentor into the Sun.

Incidentally, NewsBlur is getting the beginnings of a spam problem now. I don’t really hold a lot of hope out that it will get addressed.
