Livefyre replaces static comment sections with dynamic, real-time conversations to help build engaged online communities. The Livefyre APIs let users create their own community and revenue-generating widgets. The API returns data such as comments, conversations, active profiles, site resources and more. It uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON.
Livefyre has just launched StreamHub, a new set of tools for Enterprise customers that builds upon the Livefyre core real-time comment platform and the Livefyre API. StreamHub curates the social web and allows publishers, television networks and brands to incorporate relevant discussions via social media into their websites.
For a long time the comment section on any webpage was nothing more than internet real estate about to be foreclosed on. Plagued by spammers, pointless shout outs, and unreal amounts of bickering, most users chose to forgo perusing what was once a land of potential user interaction. Livefyre, a designer of Dynamic comment platforms, is working hard at ushering commenting into the promised land, with the Livefyre API to help get us there.
