You can use InfraNodus to automatically generate live updates for the data you import: news feeds (RSS), Twitter and Google search results.
This can be a useful feature if you want to keep track of what's going on at the moment or if you want to share a concise visual overview with the others.
All InfraNodus graphs can be exported and embedded on other website (including the Live Update ones). In fact, we ourselves are using the live graphs for the trending topics on Twitter and the news of the day to showcase InfraNodus' capabilities.
To set up the Live update for a graph, please, follow the steps below:
Step 1: If you haven't do so already, import the Tweets, an RSS feed or Google search results.
Step 2: Once your graph is visualized, go to the Live panel at the top right part of the screen. You will be presented with several options to keep your graph updated:
You have several options available there.
For Twitter live updates, you can:
1) Choose the number of tweets that will be updated
2) Choose the type of data you want to have:
a) Most popular tweets (Twitter's own selection based on likes and RTs — good to have an overview)
b) Most recent tweets (good to keep your hand on a topic's pulse)
c) Mixed results (Twitter's selection of popular and recent stuff)
d) Tweets of a specific user (track a Twitter account)
c) Tweets in a certain public list (you can put several accounts into a list and visualize the results)
3) Choose the search query (leave "#" for all Tweets)
4) Update frequency: Daily / Hourly / Every Minute (available on Enterprise only)
5) Type of update:
a) Overwrite — erase the old graph and overwrite with every update
b) Append — add only the new stuff, keep the old (watch out — your graph will grow large)
c) Clone — every time save a new graph, so you can track a topic's evolution in time
For Google live updates and for RSS feeds we offer similar options.
Step 3: Once you selected your options, click "Activate" and the Live Update icon will become green, so your live updates will be activated.
Step 4: You can Deactivate live updates at any time (click "Deactivate") or manually click "Update" to force an update.
If you would like to share your graph, you might want to make it public.
