Subscription changes for Pureinfotech readers

Since Google is shutting down its Feedburner service, in the coming days, we’ll be switching to another service called “follow.it.” It’s a similar service that provides a medium (newsletter) to send out a list of our recent content to you via email.

If you have previously subscribed to our feed, there’s no action on your part. Just be aware that soon you will receive emails with our updates from “follow.it” instead of Feedburner. If you don’t wish to receive any more emails, now it’s a good time to follow the “Unsubscribe now” link in your last Feedburner email. If you receive an email from “follow.it,” you can always click the “unfollow” link.
