With Livefyre Sidenotes, your readers can engage directly with content — a quote, a paragraph, an image — anywhere on your blog posts, inspiring focused conversations and allowing readers to interact with and share your content as they read it.

Elevate the quality of conversations: * Readers can choose precisely where to place each Sidenote, which is then surfaced directly beside the selected content. This gives readers a much more granular way to engage with content, resulting in more meaningful conversations. Make engagement easier: * Sidenotes enables readers to make a connection with a particular quote, phrase or image seen on the page, making it easy and fun for readers to capture reactions, insights and questions as they happen.

  • Readers can share Sidenotes with their social networks on Facebook and Twitter, drawing more people into the conversation and onto your content. Allow readers to engage with content, not just each other:
  • Because Sidenotes are contextual, users tend to keep the conversation focused on the content being annotated, rather than reactions to what others are saying. Sidenotes also makes it easier for you to clarify points and engage in debate around specific pieces of content with readers.
