Google has decided to renew the Google Reader service. All the people that loved the old reader due to its sharing features has no way to export the following and followers profiles to the new Google Reader over G+ interface.
But there is a way to do it, and we can help you. You only need to do the following steps:
- Go to the import/export page for Reader. Google lets you download a JSON file that includes the people you followed (following.json) in Reader and the people who followed you (followers.json). The link is here and download the two last ones that you see in the following image to your computer
- Create a "Reader" Circle (or similar name) in Google + so you can import these contacts in it.
- If you use Google Chrome, there is an extension that it is very useful. You will obtain from this page a series of profiles links to G+ for those people. The extension Circle+ (Link to Chrome Store) will be able to add all those links automagically to any circle you have in G+. If you don't use Chrome you can follow all the links one by one to add them to a G+ circle, so I encourage you to download Google Chrome and Circle +
Now it is time to get the files. Just upload one of them and you will get the profiles page:
