We’ve Upgraded Our Commenting System on German Pulse

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Ever since we launched almost a year ago, we’ve been looking for the perfect commenting system that would provide a better way to connect with all of our readers.  Up until now, if you wanted to post a comment on one of our posts, you had to decide whether to make it on the post itself or on one of our social network pages.  We’ve looked at all of the commenting solutions out there and are pleased to announce that we are now using Livefyre, which we believe is one of the best out there.

Livefyre has a robust set of features which include the ability for our readers to sign in using a variety of social logins that they already have set up and share other’s comments across Facebook and Twitter.  One of our favorite features, and the main reason we went with Livefyre, is that if someone leaves a comment on one of our posts on Facebook or Twitter, it will automatically appear in the comment stream on our post’s page.  The idea is to enhance the discussions on our articles to form a greater community with our readers.

Feel free to try out our new system and let us know what you think.  If you encounter any issues, please let us know by using the contact link at the top of the page.

Stephen founded German Pulse and LGBT Germany out of a passion to introduce Americans to a Germany that goes beyond beer and polka (although with enough beer he has been known to polka it up a bit). He's a coffee addict, lover of wine and good times, a hit in the kitchen and editor of TV commercials. You can follow him on Twitter (@StephenWFuchs) to find out a lot more.
