coComment users are among the most engaged, vocal, and passionate audiences on the web, and we listened closely to their ideas for enhancing the coComment experience
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2008
Taking online conversations to the next level, coComment (http://www.cocomment.com) today unveiled both a major new version that makes it easier, faster, and more fun for users to track their conversations on any site or blog and a new partnership with retaggr.com to extend and enhance user profiles.
The launch of version 3.0 builds on coComment's pioneering leadership, as the first and largest comment tracking and powering engine, and continuing innovation in the space of online conversations.
Offering the most robust conversation tracking features and services, coComment boasts more than 4.1 million unique users per month, making it the world's greatest community of people actively engaged in online conversations. It is also the first and most popular service in the category that allows users to track conversations across any site, independent of coComment's integration with the site - from blogs to newspapers to social networks. Over 22 million conversations from more than 280,000 sites are currently tracked by coComment, with more being added every day.
As part of the launch of coComment 3.0, the company also announced a partnership with exciting startup retaggr (http://www.retaggr.com) that allows commenters to extend and share their online persona. The partnership with retaggr (http://www.retaggrr.com) offers coComment users the ability to create a single, always-updated, interactive business card linked to their coComment conversations and their activity on a wide range of social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, and other popular services.
"coComment users are among the most engaged, vocal, and passionate audiences on the web, and we listened closely to their ideas for enhancing the coComment experience," said Matt Colebourne, CEO of coComment. "coComment 3.0 makes it even easier for our users to do what they enjoy most - share opinions, debate ideas, and monitor conversation across the web. The features of this new version take the conversation experience to an exciting new place and cements coComment's dominance in the category."
Colebourne added: "I'm also very excited about the retaggr partnership; our users now have the ability to share their Web 2.0 business card to effectively communicate … 'This is who I am and this is what I have to say'. I think a lot of people are going to love this."
Highlights of the new version include:
- Revamped Design - A revamped design showcases what's hot right now in the world of online conversation by making it easy for users to discover the best conversations and commenters. The new design prominently features rankings in popular categories including groups, sites, tags, and more.
- Streamlined Navigation - Enhanced navigation quickly directs users to coComment's key features: MycoComment, where users track all of their conversations and get notified when others respond; and Discover, where users can explore online conversation and find the best and most active commenters, conversations, and groups.
- Superior Tools: - The new version makes it simpler for users to utilize the "Sidebar," a tool that allows users to use coComment and navigate around the conversations on sites at the same time. The feature splits the user's screen so they can simultaneously use coComment and any other site. coComment's tracking features appear on the left side, while the site they are visiting appears on the right side.
- Improved Integration - coComment powers commenting on more than 1500 sites and blogs. With coComment 3.0, the performance of the powering functionality is significantly improved, making it easier and faster for partners to outsource their commenting functionality to coComment or integrate the service into their sites.
Hailed as "a great way to add a lot of features to [their] sites and make the users' commenting experience much richer" by PC Magazine's APP Scout blog, coComment has helped thousands of site and blog owners to increase traffic and expand their audiences.
