As some of you have discovered, I’ve added the LiveFyre comment management system here at MackCollier.com. This comes after seeing both Gini and Beth add it to their blogs, and rave about how it works. Also, I was really sold after seeing how Gini’s readers (she’s been using it for about 7 months now) love it.
The Livefyre system will make it easier to facilitate actual conversations in the comments. When I set up this blog I specified to have comments be nested, but it doesn’t always work. Livefyre should take care of that problem.
Also, it adds a Like button to comments, which is great and most of us are used to seeing this on other blogs and Facebook. And speaking of Facebook, you can also post your comment directly to Facebook AND Twitter when you leave it.
I really am excited about this system, and I am only adding it because I think it will help you. So please try it out, kick the tires, and let me know what you think. If you hate it, it will be gone. If you love it, it will never leave. The heart of this blog has ALWAYS been your comments. Anything I can do to make it easier and more valuable for you to leave comments, is what I want.
So give it a try, and let me know what you think! Also, here is Gini’s review of LiveFyre.
Oh and PS: Jenna Langer is head of Community for LiveFyre, and she was kind enough to attend the Live #Blogchat at SXSW! Thanks Jenna!
