Livefyre Apps



Livefyre’s StreamHub platform helps brands, media companies and agencies engage consumers through a combination of real-time conversation, content, social curation and advertising. With StreamHub, brands can integrate real-time content into their websites, mobile apps, advertisements, jumbotrons and television broadcasts to increase viewer engagement, boost website traffic and drive revenue.


Turn every piece of content into a real-time conversation with Comments™. Livefyre leads the market with a robust feature set including truly real-time posts, mobile compatibility, SEO optimized content, social login, listener count and a comment notifier. And with media-rich embedding options, users can post videos, songs, images and more, right into the comment stream.

Live Blog™

Become the live news source.

Feature real-time updates and images from your site’s own editors when covering a live event and turn your site into an engaging news source. This is a great option for multiple editors who will be reporting from live events including product reveals, award programs, television premieres, sporting events and press conferences. For the new XBox launch, Gamespot hosted a Live Blog™ that featured photos, live coverage and analysis from designated bloggers on-location. As a result of this engaging real-time coverage, there were over 30,000 listeners on the site during the announcement.


Spark real-time conversation about live events.

Audiences can engage in real-time conversation surrounding live events, announcements and entertainment shows. Content appears as a continuous, real-time stream of unthreaded conversation to facilitate rapid conversation and maximize energy on a page.


Focused comments. In context. Anywhere on the page.

Sidenotes inspires more focused conversations by allowing readers to engage directly with content — a quote, a paragraph, an image — anywhere on a page. By inviting readers to interact and share your content as they read, Sidenotes lowers the barrier for engagement, increases time on site and can boost conversational civility.

Sidenotes is mobile-ready, SEO optimized, and is included with every subscription to Comments and Community Comments.



Livefyre 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.

They plan to leave users hanging

As you can see here:
On Feb 1st of 2017 Livefyre will stop working for free users and will shift it’s focus completely to Enterprise customers.
Yes, it’s because of us, the users that Livefyre is where it’s and was sold to Adobe, yet, we will be the first ones to be dropped.

Thanks Livefyre team, thanks Adobe, btw, flash is taking too long to die, please unplug it.

Ps. I migrated to Vuukle, you should check it out.
