New for Netvibes Potions: Google Drive and Netatmo Thermostat


Today we’ve added two new ingredients so you can do even more with Netvibes Potions. You can now remotely control your Netatmo Thermostat and upload files to Google Drive automatically, in response to custom triggers or events. Let’s see how the new Potion ingredients work.

With Potions, you can be a wizard of the Internet of Things by controlling automatic interactions from your dashboard. Achieve more in your business by automating actions (for example, When website traffic increases for 5 days in a row, then email the team). Or take control of your personal life by automating apps and smart devices (e.g., When I post a photo on Instagram, then automatically share the picture on Facebook and Tumblr).

To create your own Potion, simply mix-and-match the Trigger(s) and Action(s) you want to take place. Potions are fully customizable, and the possibilities are endless! (Learn more about using Potions in our documentation).

Here are some Potions you can activate today using the new ingredients:

New on the Dashboard: Merge Entities within Search Facets


Netvibes Universal Search (available for VIP and Premium dashboards) makes it quick and simple to locate any piece of content or information from your dashboard. Simply type in a keyword, use Boolean search terms, or drill down by facets–including people, geographical location, sentiment (negative/positive/neutral), and more.

Beginning today, Premium users can now merge multiple entities together in Universal Search in order to avoid redundancies and analyze data in different ways. Here’s how it works.

In Universal Search, named entities are typed information that can be extracted from your personal corpus or sources. The Netvibes dashboard automatically identifies these entities. For example: “Donald J. Trump” is an entity under the “People” facet, and “Super Bowl” is an entity under the “Event” facet.

Netvibes’ goal is to always provide you with accurate answers to the questions you want to ask. With many redundant names in use for brands, people and events, it can be difficult to get accurate insights on the topics most important to you. Using Mr. Trump as an example, there are many different entities referring to him, such as: “Donaldrump,” “Presiden John Trump,” “Donald J. Tt Trump” and more. By default, the Netvibes dashboard tracks each of these entities separately. If you want to analyze “President Trump” mentions versus “Donald J. Trump” mentions, that’s easy to do.

But what if you want to analyze ALL Trump mentions (regardless of the name people call him)? You can now easily merge entities together on the Netvibes dashboard to avoid redundancies and group similar words together for clearer insights. This feature also streamlines the analytics on your dashboard to reveal more accurate results. For example, a Word Cloud graph showing the most popular words associated with “Donald Trump” might be cluttered with Trump names, but after you merge the entities together, the Word Cloud will list Trump only once, thereby revealing other terms associated with the topic.

To merge entities on the dashboard, click on an entity (example: “Donald J. Trump”), and from the menu click “Associate with.” Following the wizard instructions, you can associate any entity(ies) with another entity. Here are some examples where this is useful:

Video: Top Tech Trends 2017 – Silicon Valley vs. France


In this webinar, Netvibes CEO Freddy Mini presents the findings from a new research project Netvibes conducted for French investment bank BPIFrance. What are the most popular topics in tech for 2017? How do tech trends differ between the U.S. and France’s ecosystem?

A custom Netvibes dashboard analyzed over 1 million news and high tech articles, as well as social media accounts of nearly 500 venture capitalists on both sides of the Atlantic, to determine what are the hottest topics in technology today across Silicon Valley and France. Click on the video above to watch.

BPIFrance asked us to compare 17 tech topics between France versus the U.S.

First, the most talkative topics (meaning 10+% of the overall content) were:

  • Mobile
  • BioTech
  • FinTech
  • Transportation
  • Security

17 top tech topics in 2017

Video: Did Elon Musk achieve his Tesla “Master Plan”?


In 2006 Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced his first “Master Plan” for the company. The plan included 4 steps to take Tesla from an early concept to mature automotive manufacturer:

  1. Create a low volume car, which would necessarily be expensive
  2. Use that money to develop a medium-volume car at a lower price
  3. Use that money to create an affordable, high volume car
  4. Provide solar power  

Did Musk succeed in his objectives? To analyze, we gathered all the available data into a Netvibes dashboard. Click on the webinar video above to watch as we cross-analyze web, social and financial data, leveraging predictive analytics and historical comparisons to evaluate Tesla’s success.

A few of the questions that Netvibes explores include:

  1. Was the sales volume of the Tesla Roadster considered low? (Yes)
  2. Was the price point of the Tesla Roadster considered expensive? (Yes)
  3. Is the retail price of the Tesla Model 3 considered affordable? (Yes)

Webinar : Analyze Elon Musk’s “Master Plan”


Update: Watch the webinar video here: https://vimeo.com/207682225

In 2006 Elon Musk announced his first Master Plan, with steps intended to take Tesla from an early concept without any tangible products to the world’s hottest automotive manufacturer. Did he succeed?

Join us for a free webinar where we will use a Netvibes Dashboard to analyze the data and determine whether Elon Musk has fully achieved Tesla’s original Master Plan. We’ll start with the first bullet, “Create a low volume car, which would necessarily be expensive,” and evaluate available data to determine whether Mr. Musk has been successful in each of his objectives.

With the Netvibes dashboard collecting and analyzing data over the last year, we have been able to see and predict key trends. This webinar will introduce you to the key elements of gaining insights with Dashboard Intelligence, including:

  • Cross-analysis of web, social and financial data sets
  • Identifying key trends & insights and automating delivery
  • Understanding consumer purchasing decisions
  • Predictive analytics and historical comparisons

New from Netvibes: Improved Universal Search


We’re continually improving our dashboard features to help you get more done with Netvibes. Today we launched our newly improved Universal Search functionality for VIP and Premium users. Let’s explore what’s new.

With Universal Search, you can instantly find whatever you’re looking for by typing in simple keywords or drilling down by facets, including language, sentiment, geographical location and more. Beginning today, you can also use Universal Search to locate apps on the dashboard. To try it, simply search for a keyword, such as the app name or a word contained in the app. Netvibes’ Universal Search bar will auto-return results as you type. Results are automatically divided into categories to help you home in on your target, whether you’re looking for an app, an RSS feed, an article, or something else.

For example, when we search for the keyword “Weather,” Universal Search returns many results across different categories:
Article: “Winter weather slams the east coast”
App: Weather
Feed: The Weather Channel

If we want to see only feeds containing the keyword “weather,” we can type in that facet using Universal Search. For example, if we search for “Feed:weather”, the dashboard returns these results:
