"Personalized portals for everyone"

What do you like best?

Netvibes allows me to gather all my reading sources in one place for easy access. In addition to the RSS modules, it has a multitude of apps, from accessing email to checking the weather, including to-do lists, twitter access, bookmarks and even a HTML editor. The user has a lot of freedom to organize and configure how these modules will appear in her page and it is also possible to create additional tabs. Finally, Netvibes allows users to create "potions" that automate tasks, similar to the functions of IFTTT (https://ifttt.com/).

What do you dislike?

The mobile app still can be a bit confusing to use. This is understandable, since typically netvibes users will have a lot of content, which is hard to fit in small screens. Still, it is clear that the company should revamp its mobile app in order to give mobile users a more complete experience .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Despite the current focus in social media monitoring, Netvibes can be much more flexible, for example, acting like a research ambient with the right reading sources and access to writing tools It excels as a way to have a broad idea of what is being said in different channels.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to focus on my research, since I don't need to leave the page for reading different sites. The fact that netvibes includes access to twitter and Gmail helps even more to stay focused on my work without outer distractions. Any company can customize a start page for their employees using netvibes, making easier to present important information.

"Never miss any post from the blogs you follow, monitor your brand, your twitter and your competition"

What do you like best?

Its fundamental point in favor is to be able to find out about the updates of the pages that you want to follow without having to go looking for them. With this, you save time and only focus on the information that you are looking for at that moment. Like Diigo, efficiently organize the links and in this, very in favor, you can customize the page.

What do you dislike?

Frankly I have seen utility in the fact of being able to keep up to date the information and also, the links would remain saved, but I was disappointed that I get problems with some pages. With which, everything would depend on your improvements and the need you have for this resource.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to monitor very different topics or have too many tabs, you can create a new dashboard. It is the equivalent of having another Netvibes account, only you can manage it with the same user. All these dashboard are private, but you can also create your public dashboard, including the windows and widgets of your web pages or blogs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's indispensable to keep up to date the social networks, web page and blog of your organization in one place easy and quick and the organization loves its ease and speed to efficiently carry out the work

"Time saver"

What do you like best?

netvibes is an awesome service at a very cheap rate. the service costs only 2 dollars a month and you can save hours of browsing around the web with it. Technically Netvibes is a simple platform to collect the main headlines from the web and put it all together into your dashboard where you can analyse them. the best thing you dont get random data but whats interesting to you. when signing up you can select your interests and it will show up in the dashboard. the updates are available in two languages, English and French. the dashboard is really nice, its arranged with different tabs showing diffrenet interests. topic watch is a helpdul feature in netvibes, you can configure it to do perform different actions when one topic pops up in your interest like you'll get an email. in the dashboard there are many apps which are actually sources of content , they contain main newspapers, magazines,blogs and more. you can easily configure them by adding and app or deleting an app if its not interesting to you. social analytics in another feature of the service that analyses the social networks for your interests as well as keep track of your social media pages.

What do you dislike?

the support is good but they usually take hours to reply. the free plan available on the platform is very limited and there isn;t much you can do with it other than reading social media contents. the social media analytics function is only available with a premium plan. when topic watch is on you have to configure them really well or else you get spammed with irrelevant content.

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is a real time saver, if youre interested try this platform for once and you will never leave,

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Netvibes helps you find updates with keywords of your interest. there is also a social media management and analytics platform within the site which is costly.

"One of a kind"

What do you like best?

netvibes is an awesome platform that help you keep up with whats going around the globe with very minimal effort. the basic thing this service doing is keeping track of the interests, which you get a chance while signing up to select. all these information are collected from the globe and bought into your dashboard where you can see it. the interest can be selected in many ways, whether you want to follow a topic like a cryptocurrency, an event like world cup or even a keyword in your favourite topic, you can do it here. the possibity of getting such data in your fingertips is time saving and can help you get goind witht the business. the premium pricing is great with just $2 a month, well there is also a free tier available which only tracks social media for the updates. there is also another plan which is a bit costiler that helps you monitor your business and do social media analytics on the pages under a single roof.

What do you dislike?

to get priority support you have to go for VIP plan. the price for premium plan which includes social media analytics is way too high. the search option isn't that great and you can end up with a lot of updates thats out of your interest.

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is one of those services that can help you do market research on a much better way, i highly recommend you to try out the platform.

"best Digital Journal"

What do you like best?

netvibes is a digital journal that can be customised in a way that we desire. you can add RSS feed to the blogs that you like, select feeds you need and sources from which you need to see the updates, manage sections according to categories and much more to get a personalised look. i needed data from the web around updates on designing and i just added it to the feed, the program searches around the web for articles and headlines and shows it in my feed, so i could easily track whats relevant for me. the tool saves a lot of time which is required if we searched the web for articles manually. the interface is something i should definitely mention. it's very clean and beautiful, you could easily find what youre looking for with just a look. the setup and personalisation of the tool is also simple and anyone can do it. the usability of the tool is also simple. there is a free version of the tool available that got limited features and when needed more customization you could upgrade to the paid version. you can also try the premium version free cost with the free trial and choose if you want to upgrade

What do you dislike?

More filtering options are necessary. When trying to find new content related to interest, sometimes you get content that's irrelevant, and that needs a fix.

Recommendations to others considering the product

there is a free version of the software available for you to try, take advantage of it to try the software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

its a tool that's used to track down the trends in the industry,

"Netvibes is excellent to build your personal or team "Information ecosystems""

What do you like best?

Netvibes is an excellent tool to aggregate information from different sources. It's very handy to push RSS feeds to, but its built in connectors also allow easy integration to monitor hundreds of other sources, such as Twitter or Facebook or Google Analytics.

What do you dislike?

Netvibes didn't really make the transition into the mobile space. The mobile website is still a bit lackluster and buggy, there are no mobile apps.

This should receive more focus, i.e. there should be push notifications on my mobile around very urgent topics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't have a strong mobile use case, I would definitely check out Netvibes as an option to keep a team up to date on content.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're mainly solving the challenge to stay up to date on certain topics. Let's say we roll out a new eMail CRM system for a client. I want to make sure that the client receives all new information regarding that system, also relevant discussions. We then build a netvibes dashboard that assembles the blog of the system, Twitter feed, Facebook page updates, etc, but also customer voices, discussions, Google alert data, etc.

"Simple and useful dashboard "

What do you like best?

I love that I can set up a dashboard and see dozens of headlines from dozens of websites all at once. It is so much easier than switching back and forth between browser tabs.

What do you dislike?

Haven't come across any dislikes from the site.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For culling and curating news and other information, Netvibes is my favorite solution. I can easily see all of the information from the sources I refer to, and set up a dashboard for each topic.

UI/UX is a little dated, albeit still very clean and useful.

It's the best RSS aggregator I've used.
