One such reader is NewsSquares, a Chrome app specifically catered to the interests of news readers.

We Live In The Age Of Conversation Overload: G+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn... | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it
Interesting twist by Tom Foremski of the information overload issue: Tom points out that more than ignoring articles or content, missing out interactions with people is really annoying.
