Google disrupted our news feeds

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

A mild anxiety descended yesterday over the offices of the China Speakers Bureau as our much appreciated RSS-reader Inoreader produced hundreds of disrupting messages: “This RSS feed URL has been deprecated”. Which mean that our feeds from Google News do not work anymore and our digital radar was killed.

For years we have been collecting these feeds from Google News to follow the activities of our speakers, follow people and companies in China, and keep updated about developments in the world. Now, Google did no retire their news department – like they did in the past with their RSS-reader – but we will have to reinstall hundreds of news feeds. That is the best scenario.

For the time being, updates on our websites and social media will be limited or zero. We hope to be up to speed again after the weekend. Apologies for any inconveniences.
