Changing Conversation on capsun.org with Livefyre

Disclosure: Livefyre is the exclusive sponsor of BlogcastFM, where I serve as Editor-in-Chief and receive compensation. However, I was neither paid nor asked to write this post.

Capsun's New Livefyre Profile

I first saw Livefyre in action when my friend John Garcia deployed it on NonStopHonolulu.com back in August 2010. It took me a while to work out the kinks in my registration, but I finally got on earlier this year. This impressed the folks at Livefyre when I noted that I had known about them for a year, making me one of the early adopters (Thanks, John!).

So just what is Livefyre? Basically, it’s a commenting system. From their WordPress plugin description, Livefyre is a real-time comment solution that centralizes conversations from around the social web back to your content, while encouraging live engagement between users on your site. But the description I like the most is from their Director of Strategy, Jenna Langer, who says they are “changing conversation across the web.”

Earlier this morning, I woke up and decided today was the day to activate Livefyre here on capsun.org. It was quick and painless. It took less than 10 minutes for me to complete, including importing all of my comments, but the whole thing would have taken even less time if I hadn’t been trying to take screen shots and drafting this blog post. While I’ve only seen it deployed on WordPress blogs and sites, I just discovered this morning that it also works with tumblr sites. They even have an instructional video.

Livefyre's Simple 2-Step Process

This installation has actually been on my to-do list for a long time. In fact, when I finally finished the install this morning, I saw my overdue notice from October 7 of this year. Of course, as an irregular blogger, I thought it was more important to actually have blog posts up than a comment system for a blog I didn’t update. :)

There are a few easy steps to go through to install Livefyre on a WordPress blog

So as of now, all systems are go – so please feel free to comment away. And if you like what you see, you may want to checkout how Livefyre can help you on your own blog.

Mahalo!
