New VIP & Premium Feature: Exportable RSS for Tracked Topics

Your dashboard may include a wide range of feeds: General news from the New York Times, tech news from TechCrunch and The Next Web, sport news from ESPN, your best friend’s personal blog, your mom’s cooking blog, etc.
What if you wanted to create an RSS feed that would gather all the articles about a specific topic but that is not tied down to a unique source? Now you can!

If you are a VIP or a Premium Netvibes user, you probably already know our Tracked Topics feature: When you use Universal Search, you can save your search by creating a Tracked Topic app. Once added to your dashboard, the app will be automatically updated as new related content comes into your dashboard via your feeds so that you never miss a piece of news that matters to you.

As much requested, you can now create an RSS feed from any Tracked Topic app – and in as few as 3 clicks:

A New Netvibes for iPad: Towards a Unified User Experience

Until now, iPad users were automatically redirected to the mobile version of Netvibes — which works great on any mobile device. But we wanted to go a step further to offer a version specifically designed for the iPad, optimized with a smooth touch experience and even more features.

Grab your iPad, log on to www.netvibes.com and see for yourself. We made a lot of code & cosmetic improvements to allow our iPad users to enjoy the full power of our dashboards:

  • Drag & drop apps or tabs easily with the touch of your finger
  • Personalize your dashboard design and layouts, just like on your computer
  • Follow new trends with Drag & Follow using our new Social Search app
  • Switch from landscape to portrait simply by rotating your iPad
  • Access all your Netvibes web apps right from your dashboard

Now you can enjoy the full Netvibes experience, right from your iPad, including the Widget view that our desktop users love so much. See all your apps, move them around, simply create the perfect dashboard for you, with the tip of your fingers. Or stick to the Reader view if your prefer to display your newsfeeds. You now have the choice!

This is just the tip of the iceberg. We are embarking on a journey to bring a unified user experience across all devices and all screen sizes — with native-like UI features. Imagine being able to access your Netvibes apps and dashboard anytime, from any device, seamlessly. Perfectly in sync. Perfectly designed.

Netvibes Premium Dashboard 1.2: New Features & Improvements

It’s been two months since we launched Netvibes Premium, our powerful analytics solution for brand managers and social media professionals, and we’re constantly listening to our users remarks and suggestions to make it an even better product.

This week we’ll launch new features and improvements for both our Premium and Basic dashboards.

Social Pack Improvements (for Premium)

We listened to your feedbacks and improved our charts to make them more readable in all situations, even with large scales and extended period of analysis. We also added a color picker which allows you to choose between five different colors for every social pack widget and add clarity to your dashboard.

Highlights on charts have also been improved: relevant legend is now highlighted when you move your mouse over a particular section of a chart. And vice versa.

On widgets with sources or authors, you can now go directly to the domain by simply clicking on the favicon on the left. You can also switch to a new view that lists all unique sources, with no limitation.

Facebook Improvements (for Basic & Premium)

But we also thought about our Basic users and upgraded our Facebook widget. The widget will now allow you to drag & follow any user name or page in your timeline to start following it in a new widget. Easy!

Another thing you can now do with the Facebook widget is collapse or expand it. To gain space on your Dashboard, you can choose to only show its description and expand it back to the full widget when you need to have access to the whole timeline. Perfect for users who need to monitor a lot of Facebook timelines.

Finally we’re happy to introduce our brand new Facebook Search widget. Easily parse through your Facebook content, unveil mentions and monitor brands or topics. Add it on your dashboard and try it right away!

As you can see, there are new things for everyone, both our Basic and Premium users. And if you want to discover our Premium solution with analytics features and see how it works, why not sign up for a free trial upgrade to Netvibes Premium today and try it out?

Some issues with Facebook…

EDIT : Everything is now back to normal, Facebook and Netvibes are again working hand in hand without a glitch.

These past few days, some of our users have been experiencing difficulties connecting their Netvibes dashboard with Facebook. These issues include: signing up on Netvibes via Facebook Connect, adding a Facebook widget on a Netvibes dashboard and posting Netvibes links on a Facebook wall.

We are aware of the situation and are working closely with the Facebook teams to find a solution as quickly as possible.

We will of course keep you informed of any progress made towards a resolution of these issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Netvibes Livebar gives easy access to your most important widgets

Last month we introduced the concept of Netvibes Dashboard Intelligence (DI), the next step in Business Intelligence 2.0 for the real-time Web which revolves around three key processes: Monitoring, Listening and Taking Action. (Check out our video presentation on Dashboard Intelligence here.)

As you know, Netvibes dashboards are the perfect solution to monitor, listen and act on everything using hundreds of professional widgets for performing real-time analysis, trend reporting, team tasks and other business processes. You’ve always been able to monitor all your feeds and run all your widgets side by side in our Widget view.

But what about when you’re in Reader view?

Today we’re pleased to introduce a new feature in our Reader view called the Livebar. The Livebar is an active sidebar that lets you run your favorite listening widgets and professional apps side-by-side with the Reader. Now you can instantly pull up your work tools for quick tasks without interrupting your concentrated reading experience.

For example, you can quickly access your Twitter widget so you can track new trending topics you find or talk with your followers about a cool new article you read. You can also access professional analytics services, like Radian6, and perform searches and analysis related to what you’re reading.

You can also use it to maintain a quick and easy access to the things that matter to you: audio sources for instance (like podcasts and webradio widgets) or any other kind of medias (wallpapers feeds, pictures of the day, videos, etc.).

To try it out, log on to your dashboard, then switch to Reader view. Edit any widget and click on the brand new “Add to Livebar” option at the top to copy it to the Livebar. Notice that you can open and close the Livebar simply by clicking the vertical border on the right side of the screen. So it’s never in the way when you want more space for your feeds.

Netvibes is the first and only reader designed for real, professional use – for busy people who need to monitor many things at once, listen to key trends and sentiments at once, and take action using multiple work tools at once. SmartTagging and Livebar are two important new features we’ve introduced recently to help professionals self-organize all their content and access all their work tools, respectively.

This year, we’ll continue to add other powerful Dashboarding Intelligence features to help transform your dashboard into the ultimate business intelligence solution for Monitoring, Listening and Taking Action across the real-time Web and your organization.

So stay tuned and give us your feedback!
