If you use an RSS reader, you probably know by now that Google Reader is going away on July 1. While there have been rumblings of other companies stepping up to take its place, it might be a good idea to review all the different ways you can follow TV by the Numbers. Even if you don't use RSS, these options are good to know!

Twitter: You can get our headlines and links to all our articles on your Twitter account by following our Twitter feed @tvbythenumbers.http://twitter.com/tvbythenumbers If you're currently using RSS, following our Twitter feed is likely to be the closest current alternative.

You can also follow the Cancellation Bear on Twitter via @TheCancelBear. The Cancellation Bear will retweet all the Renew/Cancel Index post titles and links as well as engage in some back and forth banter which is mostly absent from our standard @TVbytheNumbers Twitter feed.

Facebook: Click here to go to Facebook where you can become a Fan of TV by the Numbers. “Liking” our Facebook page allows you to see our posts in your Facebook news stream. Because Facebook's algorithm doesn't send everything to your news stream, if you want to see more of our stuff in your news stream you should ‘Like’ some of our individual posts.You can always click through to our Facebook page to see all our latest posts.

Email: You can get our posts delivered daily in a single email. Usually at about 2pm Eastern time. To start, click here. Our current daily email is driven by Google's Feedburner service, which also may have a limited lifespan. We will explore alternatives were it to be dropped.

RSS: You can have our articles sent to your RSS reader. To start, click on the RSS icon in the blue bar above or here. Our feed is currently driven by Google's Feedburner service, which also may have a limited lifespan. We will explore alternatives were it to be dropped.

Comments: You can see a list of the the latest comments to any posts on our site at this page. You can also use an RSS reader to follow our comments at this feed http://feeds.feedburner.com/tvbythenumberscomments  Our comments feed is currently driven by Google's Feedburner service, which also may have a limited lifespan. We will explore alternatives were it to be dropped.

    Call me old fashioned but I don’t use any RSS reader, or update program or whatever to see new ratings posts here. I just use the old fashioned method of trial and error and visit the site randomly, if a new post hasn’t come up when I do, then I simply come back later.

    Yes I use twitter but don’t pay attention to every ratings release lol

    Interestingly, Robert calls me old fashioned because I do use one.

    Did I? If I have any mocking tendencies towards people who remain habituated to RSS, they are subconscious! I gave RSS up a couple of years ago but it wasn’t a “this is so 2005!” decision.

    I don’t use Twitter/Facebook, but glad the site is still good.
    Like other comments, I have no clue how all this works or why, nor do I care.

    Thank you TVbythenumbers for keeping the site up or else I would be lost!

    I half expect a “surprise” announcement before July 1 that Google has listened to its users and integrated RSS feeds into Google Plus…

    It may simply have been my generalized feelings of old-fashionedhood. They are frequent these days!

    There’s something to be said about people who are comfortable in their own old-fashionedhoodness. :grin:
