Guardian Dumps Facebook "Social Reader"
Despite its initial success, the Guardian is shutting down its “social reading” app on Facebook, and will instead direct users to its Web site. “We have decided to switch our
focus to creating more social participation for our users on our own core properties,” Anthony Sullivan, a product manager at the newspaper, writes in a blog post. GigaOm attributes the decision
to changes in the way Facebook handles social-reading apps.
