The company sent out its survey to more than 17,000 people who signed up in lieu of getting an alternative for Google Reader and in return the company received more than 8,000 responses so far.
The survey results are as follows:

- Over 75% of respondents indicated that they use Google Reader for both work and play.
- People keep on trying a lot of different types of RSS products, but not got the one which meet their needs.
- 67% reported that they use keyboard shortcuts at least some of the time.
- While 25% reported never using search, over just over half said that they sometimes do.
