A new chapter in the story of Storify is starting today. We’re thrilled to let you know we’re joining forces with Livefyre in what will be the world’s leading social curation company.
Livefyre currently powers real-time conversation and social curation for more than 400 of the world’s largest media properties and brands, many of whom already use Storify to tell stories online using social content. As we expanded Storify to provide additional value for the largest publishers and media companies in the world, we saw an incredible opportunity to join Livefyre. Livefyre’s strong financial backing and market presence will help Storify scale to meet top-tier customer demands, without changing the free product you’ve grown to know and love.
What does this mean for you and the rest of the Storify community? Our free profiles will continue to receive the same service they enjoy today, with no changes to features and functionality. Over the next few months, we plan to turn our VIP service into an enterprise offering with brand new features such as single sign-on to create stories, centralized story and editor management, Storify galleries, user participation tools and engagement analytics.
Starting today, the entire Storify team is joining Livefyre to continue to lead development and growth of the Storify product and community. Livefyre is an amazing company, and we can’t wait to begin working out of their San Francisco headquarters right away.
