These are the major trends emerging from the DEMO Spring conference

The DEMO Spring conference is the “launchpad for emerging technology” and it is full of excellent ideas. Social media is the primary theme of this week’s show, with three sessions entitled “Demofocus on social on media technologies.” These are some of the best ideas, social or otherwise that have emerged thus far:

Websense’s Defensio for Facebook
Defensio for Facebook is an application that allows businesses using the social network to better protect their Pages. Pages full of spam comments and posts turn off potential customers. Defensio eliminates that clutter by preventing unwanted content from being posted.

This application lets you set preferences so that you can moderate posts on your Page. You can also prevent your Page from showing links to certain sites.

Nimble is a “social relationship manager” that enables you to connect all of your contacts, calendars and communications from multiple social networking sites. You can integrate your email, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts with Nimble so you can view all of your communications in one place.

Nimble hopes to make it easier for companies to maintain a dialogue and improve interactions with their customers. Once it is integrated with more social networks, it will become even more useful.

mSignia’s Dynamic Device Identity
mSignia works on Android devices to make access to cloud services easier. It secures your smartphone while eliminating the need to enter passwords on every site.

If you stop using that device, there’s no need to worry. mSignia eliminates all of the credentials associated with your accounts so that your information can no longer be accessed from that device.

These products, along with many others being presented at the DEMO Spring 2011 event, make conducting business simpler and more seamless.
