Livefyre

Powering social everywhere.

Livefyre helps brands, media companies and agencies engage consumers through a combination of real-time conversation, social curation and social advertising. With Livefyre, brands can integrate real-time social content into their websites, mobile apps and advertisements to increase viewer engagement, boost website traffic and drive revenue. Among a number of other applications, Livefyre’s product suite includes two commenting solutions: our free Community Comments product and LiveComments, our enterprise solution.

Community Comments is intended for individual users and small publishers, replacing your default comments with real-time conversations. Updates are instantly pushed to the browser resulting in the fastest, most reliable social content publishing on the market. Unique social features make it easy to capture all the conversations going on about your posts across Twitter and Facebook, pulling more people into the conversation. If you’d like to download Community Comments, you can learn more here or view the setup instructions below.

LiveComments is an enterprise level application built for high-volume publishers and brands looking for a robust, configurable commenting application that gives them complete control and ownership of their community and its content. Our enterprise customers have access to every core application built on the StreamHub platform, ownership of all data, 24/7 in-house support and a full developer toolkit featuring APIs and SDKs for total customization. If you are a Livefyre enterprise customer and would like to install LiveComments, please contact your account manager for more information.
