If you use Feedly, you might be interested in learning how it got its start, and how the end of Google Reader was a huge advantage for Feedly. In fact, according to Business Insider, the site was able to make more than $1 million and catch the attention of 15 million users practically overnight.

Business Insider’s Alyson Shontell described how co-founders Edwin Khodabakchian and Cyril Moutran were able to get and keep most of Google Reader’s former audience. For example, they made sure their servers could keep up with the suddenly increased demand once Google Reader shut down.

He feels his product is less of a news reader, like Flipboard, and more of a professional resource, like LinkedIn’s Pulse.”
