Find out why tens of thousands of bloggers use Livefyre to power their communities. Get started with Community Comments, plus our powerful Admin Dashboard and User Profiles for FREE.
Livefyre’s platform to display free comments, Community Comments, replaces your default comments with real-time conversations. Our social integration features make it easy to capture all the conversations going on about your posts across Twitter and Facebook, and pull your friends into the conversation.
A centralized dashboard allows you to track and monitor every interaction on your site from one location, in real-time. Filter by comment, network or user, and moderate with ease. We make it seamless to maintain high quality conversation on your content.
The best becomes even better with Livefyre Community Comments. This platform for displaying free comments was designed from the ground-up for the social web, turning your blog into the hub of engagement.
Livefyre Sidenotes inspires focused conversations by allowing users to engage directly with content — a quote, a paragraph, an image — anywhere on a page. By allowing readers to interact with and share your content as they read, Sidenotes lowers the barrier for engagement, increases time on site and boosts conversational civility.
Note: For Community Comments, Sidenotes is only available on WordPress setups via the Livefyre Sidenotes plug-in.
You love the comments and conversation going on about your blog posts, but they’re not all happening on your site. Your friends, family and loyal readers are also commenting on your post via Facebook and Twitter and you haven’t been able to capture that conversation. Until now.
With Livefyre SocialSync, the conversation happening on Facebook and Twitter automatically syncs directly to your content, where it belongs. SocialSync comments can be replied to and interacted with just like any other comment, including being automatically posted back to Twitter or Facebook.
Livefyre makes it simple for readers to join your community. Users have the option to sign in with multiple social networks to put a face to their name and comments. That way they can jump right in and join the conversation. No new log-in required.
Sites can also use our guest commenting option to let their community comment without even creating an account.
Getting your friends in on the conversation is as simple as typing the “@” sign. Easily invite Facebook and Twitter friends to join the conversation right from the comment box. Give your readers access to their entire social network to bring specific friends that would be interested in the conversation.
You have a great community with some smart ideas. Okay..maybe not all of these comments are Mensa quality, but a lot of them are interesting, funny or just a bit insightful.
Let your community share those thoughts! With one click, users can easily share free comments with their friends on other social networks including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Empower your community to spread the best reactions to your content and bring more traffic to your site.
There’s a reason teachers gave out gold stars in elementary school- who doesn’t love being told “job well done?” Let your community members recognize those users who elevate the conversation. Livefyre even shows the avatars of every user who’s liked a comment.
Sometimes you just need to be bold. Free Comments includes new visualization tools like rich-text editing so that you can emphasize your point of view in flourishes of bold italics, or create a bulleted list to drive home your argument.
Most of us look to our friends for their recommendations about a new restaurant, book, or a hair stylist who won’t give you the Dorothy Hamill wedge. It makes sense to discover new ideas, places and people through our community.
Blogging is no different. Actually, one of the best parts about blogging is discovering new content and connections. LinkBack encourages community interaction by letting other Livefyre bloggers display a link to their latest post when they leave a comment.
Most of us are more inclined to think about what we’re saying when speaking to a crowd. And no one likes to feel like they’re speaking to an empty room. Our Live Listener count lets readers know exactly how many people are on the current page or have followed the conversation, giving them more incentive to leave a thoughtful response. It encourages more participation and higher quality conversations.
Community Comment Notifiers make it as simple as possible to follow conversations in real-time, even if you’re not looking at the comments! The widget shows you who is participating in the conversation and what they are saying as it happens, all without losing your place on the page – so you never have to miss out.
Livefyre Community Comments enhances your media embedding options so that you can share photos from Flickr and Instagram, play videos from YouTube and Vimeo, flip-through slide decks on SlideShare, listen to songs from SoundCloud and Spotify, geek-out on animated gifs from Myspace, and even feature Wikipedia articles directly in the conversation stream.
Comment Editing allows users to edit their own free comments within a specific time frame so that they can fix their spelling mistakes without changing the context of the following comment stream. Site admins can make edits to all free comments as well. Livefyre realizes mistakes are inevitable. But your free comments shouldn’t have to show them.
Conversations and free comments are about the people behind them and Livefyre User Profiles make it easy to form a community. Our user bios allow community members to share a bit about themselves and the topics they care about, while also showing the conversations where they have left free comments. If users choose they can also receive email notifications when a new comment is left as an easy way to stay engaged.
We make it easy to monitor, moderate and filter your comments with ease. Elevate the conversation on and gain insights on what drives discussion for your community.
Moderate live from the stream, and see a complete history of all actions. Oh, and don’t forget, thanks to real-time machine-learning protection your comments are basically spam-free.
Develop trust with community members by letting them notify you when a comment is offensive or inappropriate. Multiple flagging options give you more insight into the quality of the conversation, and community members can leave you a note to provide further explanation.
Not everyone has the eye of a copy editor, but now your free comments can appear as though they were checked by one. Site admins can edit free comments to correct spelling and grammar, and make sure that shared links and embedded media display content to keep the conversation clear and relevant.
Communicate with other moderators on your site to follow-up with a particular commenter, or visit their blog to leave a comment. No need to leave your admin panel to coordinate with your moderators, see all your communication around comments in one place.
Designate as many moderators as you’d like—editors, guest authors, community managers—and kick it up a notch by managing their access levels too. You control your site and how it’s moderated.
Streamline moderation by allowing a core group of readers to comment on your site without passing through the moderation process with Whitelists. You can also deal with trolls and flamers quickly and efficiently by designating them as banned users – removing them and their comments from your community.
All free comments are processed through Livefyre’s real-time profanity filters, even the words you didn’t even know existed get nixed before they hit the page.
Keep track of the most active participants in your community and see what conversations they are taking part in on other Livefyre blogs. You can also reach out to community members that have been quiet in your community to re-engage them and through their user profiles find the URLs for their blog.
Get a view of your most active users and conversations at a glance. Organize your reports by date range and easily track which conversations need your attention.
Livefyre allows our communities to interact in a slick, real-time environment as opposed to clunkier chat programs or static commenting options which have proven to be inferior solutions.
