Aggregate Your Brand’s Feeds with Netvibes

I’ve been trying to find a good way to aggregate all the public feeds for a particular brand and I came upon netvibes which easily allows me to import rss feeds and any other type of content that is public using their widget technology. I could of used myyahoo or igoggle but to my knowledge there isn’t a public non-password protected page that I can customize. Netvibes allows me to have a personalized private page and a public viewable page with whatever content that I can import via rss or any open source content. There are plenty of datasources accessible via their widget gallery such as adding your twitter feed or flickr feed. Here is a video demo (that I uploaded to blip.tv – was the best flash 8 conversion of a .mov movie vs. viddler’s flash version which is what I usually use).

Have you used netvibes before? Let me know what widgets you have tried and found useful. Do you use any other type of service like this? Could Google Reader be used in this way? Post your comments below.

Flickr’s Redesign Screencast Longer than 90 secs

Flickr opened up the flood-gates to their redesigned personalized homepage. Now you can get quicker access to your recent uploaded photos, recent activity on your photos and one’s you’ve commented on, and statistics. Not necessarily ground-breaking but more of a re-shuffling of content. One funny thing is they did a screencast of the new features using Camtasia Studio and it was longer than 90 seconds so they couldn’t use their own video player.  It launches a new window and the video is a little over 2 minutes long. Why aren’t they eating their own dog food or at least using Yahoo! Video’s video player? hmm..Oh well. Congrats to Flickr on their minor redesign. I hope features like people tagging get implemented. Who is the product manager over there?
