LiveFyre is a real time commenting system that excels with its social features. LiveFyre has comparable features to the competition but its ability to pull in external discussions through the SocialTagging and SociaSync features puts it one step ahead.
Pro Social tagging pulls discussions from social networks
Social Tagging is another way Livefyre leverages social networks to pull in discussions to a blog. Instead of sharing the URL to a DM on twitter or a message on facebook, it's possible to tag a friend to get involved to the article right within the comment.
Pro Syncs with conversations happening on social networks
SocialSync syncs conversations happening on twitter and facebook to those left on a blog post. The synced comments behave like normal comments, and will also post replies, etc back to Facebook and Twitter.
This solves a big problem of bringing existing discussions to the post and is not available on competing products.
Pro Highly customizable interface
Livefyre doesn't do anything to prevent from customizing the css styles of the comments. It's possible to have the embedded comments match the look and feel of any site.
The LiveFyre interface allows:
- Sorting comments in ascending or descending order
- Tagging an individual user in a comment
- Following the conversation to receive updates
- Sharing individual comments
- Nesting replies
