Washington: Social news website Digg is set to launch its product, an alternative to Google Reader on June 26, less than a week before Google shuts down its reader service.

According to Washington Post, Digg's five-person newsreader team would launch the product in what is anticipated to be Google's alternative aiming at a simpler and uncluttered design.

Digg said that the product would allow users to integrate with note-taking services such as Evernote, and tools to let users sort, filter and rank their feeds.

According to the report, Digg plans to make the service into a ' freemium' product in which charges are applied for only more advanced services.

The company is aiming at initially getting the basics right with a clean and uncluttered design and a powerful backend infrastructure, adding that the company will work on a richer feature set based on users' feedback, ideas and requests, the report added.
