Announcing the news via a blog post, Google said that the sharing features on its RSS news reader would soon be removed.
Consequently, those people seeking to share or highlights websites will soon have to do so through integrated Google+ tools.
Writing the blog post, Google software engineer Alan Green conceded that this might mean that for some people Reader "is no longer for you".
Earlier this month, Google announced a significant increase in profits in the three months to September.
The US-based firm said that net income in the third quarter climbed 26 per cent to $2.73 billion (£1.74 billion).
This figure is up from $2.17 billion in the same period in 2010. Google also confirmed that its revenue rose 33 per cent to $9.72 billion.
