Netvibes Set Up Tutorial: Step-by-Step Guide

Netvibes Google Reader
Netvibes video tutorial from my free social media monitoring course

This is a step-by-step guide on how to set-up Netvibes.

Most of the Google Reader alternatives out there are focused on giving users social filters to discover the best content. But Netvibes has been there and done that. They’re more interested in helping users finding meaning through context.

The good news is, Netvibes will give you their news reader for free.

But if you want their analytics, you’ll have to pay. They are a business, after all, with a revenue model.

But their free version is ad free, has been around for nearly 8 years and since it’s the center point of their freemium sales model, the company says they have no plans to lay it to rest.

Netvibes is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes and you can add feeds and use it to aggregate blog posts and RSS feeds.

Check out my free online social media monitoring course which covers Netvibes, Recorded Future, Feedly and Traackr. I also wrote a feature comparing Feedly to Netvibes for Venture Beat as well.

And it’s currently being updated. So I’m intently studying the major Google Reader alternatives to determine which ones to include in my course revision.

Here’s my conversation with Cyril Moutran of Feedly last week and I’m talking to Jeffrey Cohen about Salesforce Marketing Cloud for next week’s show.
