Netvibes vs Yourminis vs Pageflakes

Filed under: cool stuff, tech — seniorgeek @ 10:24 pm

I have a Netvibes account which I have been using for a while (see previous post) and now I just signed up for Yourminis and Pageflakes. All three of these sites want to be your home page or your personal digital newspaper. I am going to work with all three of them for a few weeks to try to find out the pros and cons of each service.

The key here is which service will survive the shakeout. How much money, talent, management, and programmers are behind each service? There is room for maybe all three. Right now Yahoo, Google, Excite, MSN, AOL, are all surviving so all three of these may survive.

Next is to see how much press at the major sites each one of these services will receive. The aforementioned above won’t mention these as they will take users away from there sites, with the exception of Yahoo and Google.

Stay tuned for a complete report in the future.
