Netvibes previews Social Pack

“Netvibes Social Pack is the first social analytics designed to follow the free flowing train of thought of today’s brand managers and social media professionals, and automatically keep them updated – even when they’re away or traveling.” (Freddy Mini, CEO Netvibes)

If you want to know what is being said about about your brand or product, how it is perceived and who is talking about it, Social Pack is the perfect tool for you, adding powerful “adaptive social analytics” to Netvibes award-winning monitoring solution and offering the first complete platform for both monitoring and analytics.

Until now brand managers and social media professionals had to choose between monitoring OR analyzing. With standard monitoring tools, users could gather and read content, but couldn’t automatically analyze them in aggregate. With standard social analytics tools, users could generate high-level reports, but couldn’t directly explore the original content or discover new trends as they emerge.

Netvibes is the first complete platform that enables users to accomplish monitoring AND analysis side-by-side.

For years, global agencies, Fortune 500 brands and enterprises have relied on Netvibes as the ultimate listening and monitoring platform. Netvibes has won more awards than any other for its monitoring tools that feature the world’s largest content library of 200K+ apps, the world’s fastest real-time Smart Reader, deep user personalization, push publishing, mobile syncing and offline viewing—all delivered on a scalable, powerful, universal dashboard platform that works seamlessly on all browsers and mobile devices.

This uniquely makes Netvibes the natural candidate to offer the first complete platform for both monitoring and analytics. Social Pack adds the latest social analytics technology to the world’s best monitoring solution to create the next evolution in social monitoring and analytics. This hybrid approach offers three unique advantages:

Social Corpus – Results are only as good as your sources. Most social analytics are black boxes shared by everyone even if they are in different industries. You have little to no control over your sources of information or how it is analyzed. Taking advantage of Netvibes’ powerful aggregation DNA, Social Corpus gives you open access to add and control exactly what sources (blogs, influencers, news feeds) to pull from, ensuring smarter, more relevant results every time. Plus, Netvibes features a built-in library of more than 200K original content feeds and apps to choose from.

Adaptive Analytics – Flat reports mean flat results. Social Pack is a completely different way to look at reporting, offering a suite of live apps that each answer a different question with dynamic visualizations and interactive viewpoints covering: Who, What, Where, When and How. Based on these cardinal logic points, Netvibes goes beyond numbers to ensure complete answers every time. Unlike cumbersome manual reports, each dynamic app lets you quickly drill down to explore and analyze interconnected trends, influencers and ideas. For example, your influencer app may tell you who your top influencers are. You want to learn more about what blog your #1 influencer writes for and exactly what is being said about your product. Netvibes will instantly create a new app just to analyze those specific keywords revealed by that one influencer and track them over time. Even better: Netvibes also features SmartTagging which helps your organization share sentiment, comment and self-organize data—ensuring smarter results that combine both expert human curation and adaptive algorithms.

Persistent Watch – Put your brand or campaign on autopilot. Other solutions offer only simple email news alerts based on keywords. Netvibes lets you create an unlimited number of advanced alerts to automatically monitor the effectiveness of campaigns, brand reputation, competitors and even trigger actions, like adjusting campaign budgets, triggering a newsletter response or invoking a URL. Alerts can be sent to any mobile device in real-time.

Currently in private beta for existing Netvibes Premium Dashboard users, Social Pack will be publicly available for individual professionals in late July. For a private demo of Netvibes Premium Dashboards and the new Social Pack, visit this page and fill out the form.

Dashboard Anytime. Introducing new Offline mobile access.

First we promised to help you “dashboard everything” on the real-time Web and fulfilled this promise with 1-Click Dashboards and Wasabi’s 2-in-1 Smart Reader. Then we helped you “dashboard anywhere” with new mobile versions for Android, iPad and iPhone, featuring real read/unread syncing across all platforms.

Starting today, now you can “dashboard anytime” and continue to read your favorite feeds even when you’re offline. Now when you go offline, you will see a special notification that you’re in “offline mode” and you can still continue to read articles. Even better, you can organize articles and mark posts to read them later when you get back online.

The next time you go back online, your read/unread counts and Read Later lists will automatically be synced to your account and all of your other devices. This means that even if you’re in a subway under the ocean or on a plane up in the sky, you can continue to read all your feeds, and when you get back to your home or office, it will all be synced up! How cool is that?

As you know, Netvibes is not a startpage. It’s an enterprise strength real-time dashboard that’s also used by agencies, brands, governments and enterprises around the world. Our latest innovations this year enable world-class organizations to “dashboard everything, anywhere, anytime across all devices”, even while traveling in locations without Internet access. This makes sure that you can be always on, even when you’re on the go.

Dashboard Everything. The answer to the real-time Web.

What moves faster than the speed of light? The real-time Web.

Billions of tweets, comments, RSS feeds, chats, status updates, photos and videos are streamed from user to user, and then replicated and reposted infinitely over and over again–making those original bits defy physics by co-existing all around the world simultaneously–ultimately to reach out to you! Whew!

So how can we manage it all? Dashboard Everything.

When Netvibes first started, our motto was “(re)mix the Web“. It was about accelerating how people experience the Web by bringing together all of their favorite parts of the Web into one personalized place. The ultimate evolution of that led us to create Netvibes Wasabi–the ultimate dashboard for the real-time Web.

Netvibes Dashboards are way more than startpages. Our smart reader lets you view content like a live magazine or as a universal stream of everything that matters to you. Our “drag-and-follow” Twitter widgets let you quickly make new widgets to track new trending topics on the fly. Our push publishing in our Premium Dashboard offering and RSS acceleration technologies dramatically accelerate how quickly content is delivered to you. In short, Netvibes Dashboards are the best and only way to manage your entire real-time Web–not just Twitter or Facebook, but literally every single blog, photo, video, blurb and bit that you want to keep track of.

Our new motto reflects this evolution and is also the answer to how to manage the real-time Web: Dashboard Everything.

Dashboard Everything

The first era of the Web was browsing organized directories (like AOL or Yahoo!). Then as the Web grew larger, we entered the era of search (like Google). But with the explosion of real-time streams, search isn’t enough. In this third era, dashboarding offers a new way to interact with the Web, where it all comes to you, automatically, instead of you going out to it. Netvibes Dashboards let you put all of those streams right into one convenient place, personalized by you and automatically organized, updated and delivered by us.

So how can you get started dashboarding? The Dashboarding Guide

We’ve organized more than 100 of the best tools out there for helping you get started monitoring, listening and analyzing the real-time Web. Monitoring tools like customized Google News search and Digg widgets help you track and keep up to date on topics that matter to you. Listening tools like Social Mention and Trendrr help you discover and follow trending topics. Analyzing tools like Twitter Sentiment and Compete Analytics help you dig even deeper by analyzing reputations and trend charts.

Dashboarding Guide

This is only the beginning. We’re counting on you to help us rate and review these tools, suggest new tools, and share stories about how you use Netvibes Dashboards in your daily life. In the future, we’ll have how-to articles, videos and more to help people learn how they can use dashboarding as a new way to tame the real-time Web.

It’s time to Dashboard Everything.
