“Today, Livefyre officially expands into France, marking our second European launch since we announced our UK presence in September 2013. Since then, we’ve garnered more than 25 European-based enterprise customers including leading publishers and brands like News UK, Times Online, Unilever, The Sun, Fabulous, The Scottish Sun, Decca Records, Time Out Global, and Germany’s Motain”.
The list also includes several high-profile French customers, including Le Monde, Liberation, and M6.
“France has some of the most well-respected media brands in the world,” said Livefyre founder and CEO Jordan Kretchmer. “This high caliber of journalistic quality is complemented by the country’s growing appetite to engage in social media. We have found French publishers and brands eager to offer their readers and fans unparalleled social interactions on their own websites and apps.”
Livefyre accomplished this with the help of sales team outsourcing via Sales Force Europe.
Release marks the first time this technology is available across billions of webpages.
Livefyre, provider of the leading real-time conversation and social curation platform, today announced it has launched Sidenotes, the world’s first widely available web annotation technology.
Livefyre Sidenotes inspires focused conversations by enabling users to engage directly with specific pieces of content as they read. With Sidenotes, readers can select any text or image on a page to start a conversation about that particular object. Users can also share Sidenotes to Twitter and Facebook, and tag friends to draw more people into the conversation from their social networks. With Sidenotes, every piece of content on the page becomes interactive.
Sidenotes appear as each user hovers his or her cursor over the content, making it effortless to discover and join new conversations as they read. Users can also upvote and downvote each other’s Sidenotes, ensuring the best user content always appears first. The entire Sidenotes experience is available on mobile interfaces as well, where it takes on a specific form perfectly built for mobile web interaction.
