Netvibes revisited. Wowsa.

As part of the global relaunch branding social media exercise of my new training venture, I have revisited Netvibes, a “Personalized Content Aggregation Service” (PCAS for short, as you can never have enough acronyms). Just for balance, there are others on offer, such as iGoogle and Pageflakes.

As part of the global relaunch branding social media exercise of my new training venture, I have revisited Netvibes, a “Personalized Content Aggregation Service” (PCAS for short, as you can never have enough acronyms). Just for balance, there are others on offer, such as iGoogle and Pageflakes.

I must say that I have been mightily impressed. I've always used it as a news feed reeder but now the customisation options are rather awesome; you can create different tabs, install different themes, alter the layouts (by clicking on the tab) and install a panoply of widgets.

You can also have a public-facing page: I've created one as an example, with a tab of the Top 5 ZDNet bloggers for good measure (but who is the Mystery Number 1?)!

I can see it becoming an increasingly useful tool for publishing and sharing rapidly changing sites and feeds that would be just too awkward with your own site.
