GITEX 2010 Social Media Dashboard

Our GITEX LIVE 2010 Social Media Dashboard

Our social media dashboard for GITEX 2010

Its GITEX time again and GITEX 2010, the Middle East’s biggest regional IT show, takes place October 17th through 21st. So, just for a little fun, we’ve created a dashboard of social media updates using one of our favourite social media services, Netvibes:

Netvibes can be a really useful tool and we often set up Netvibes pages when starting with new clients so that we have one real-time go-to page for all their news and updates. You can add RSS feeds, custom Google and Twitter searches and there is a library of Netvibes widgets that provide different services that you can drag and drop onto your page.

Our GITEX LIVE 2010 dashboard aggregates user generated content from Flickr, Twitter, Youtube and other sources that has been posted with the tag GITEX. As a result you can see a wide range of social media updates live as they are posted by GITEX attendees and picked up by search engines and/or added to our GITEX playlists.

Good luck to all those marketing themselves at GITEX!

    Cool idea. Doesn’t seem to work right in Safari or Chrome on Mac for me.

    • Thanks for the comment Magnus! Sorry it took us a while to approve it, it got lost in the comment spam! To be honest, we didn’t test it in Safari or Chrome, but we’ll check it out.
