According to Sina Tech, on Thursday developer Tom Waddington said that he found some strings like "RSS feeds" in Facebook codes, it means that Facebook may launch its own RSS reader.

Google announced in March this year that they would close its RSS subscription service Google Reader on July 1 mainly because its use had constantly declined in the past few years. Subsequently, many companies competing to launch Google Reader alternatives. Waddington believes that this time Facebook will also join this camp.

From Facebook codes, RSS feed connects to the user's Facebook ID, each feed allows multiple categories and feed subscriptions. RSS is collected from various sites. Waddington said that it seemed Facebook was in the development of Google Reader alternative."

If Facebook is really in the development of RSS reader, it is still unclear whether the content is from the Internet or from Facebook itself.
