How Hypercomments work:

  1. Reader selects a word or a fragment of text that caught his attention and comments on it.
  2. The fragment is now highlighted and clickable. And it draws more attention of your readers.
  3. HyperComments will engage your audience in a discussion and encourage them to comment more.

  • Interactive content
  • Comments that are in the context
  • Your readers contribute to your content
  • Increased commenting activity
  • “Hot zones” visualized
