WordPress Comments Vs Livefyre
This audio post shares some thoughts about what has happened since I turned off Livefyre and reimplemented the WordPress native commenting system alongside the CommentLuv plugin:
So here is the skinny: a little less than two weeks have gone by since I turned off Livefyre and returned to the WP native commenting system. I have augmented that system with the CommentLuv premium and subscribe to comments plugin. As you may recall the reason for the change was because I received a significant number of complaints from people who said that they had difficulty using Livefyre to comment here.
I haven’t noticed a significant change in the number of comments received since then. I suppose that one could argue that people who really wished to comment did so in spite of any difficulties they may or may not have had. It appears to me that in somce cases there may be less conversation on posts than there was when I was using Livefyre.
Since I haven’t taken the time to conduct a hard analysis using real numbers this may or may not be accurate and for now I am ok with that. But I am interested in getting your thoughts and opinion about this. Please share them in the comments.
