"Producing original content is only half of the equation for digital media companies, the other half is about giving communities a way to interact with that content. Livefyre is bringing forward the next generation of real-time community applications, allowing stories to become interactive about any topic imaginable right on an organization's site, using original content as well as images, videos and tweets, curated from across the social Web."
- R "Ray" Wang, Principal Analyst and CEO, Constellation Research, Inc., said:
"Social experiences are a necessary part of today's businesses. Brands and enterprises seek new ways to engage their customers. Content is one of the key drivers in an engagement strategy and organizations must explore innovative ways to fuse original content with new content sources such as user generated social content, paid content, and earned content. Solutions that dynamically deliver relevant content with context will transform the customer experience, improve engagement, and create business value and strategic differentiation for customers and their favorite digital media and brands."
