Artiklz enables "Conversation Search" by Capturing User Generated Conversations Across the Social Media. Conversation Search lets you search through all the discussions happening on the web about a particular topic. Conversation Search enables users to answer the 5 W's: Who, Why, When, Where, and What people are talking about pertaining to a particular topic of interest.
In addition to Conversation SEARCH, Artiklz offers a 360 degree view for blog and website owners of their comments and conversation stream, thus providing the only 2-way gateway to comments. In addition to the acquiring of comments from major blogging and commenting systems, Artiklz aggregates the various popular web sharing/rating services (Digg, Reddit, Mixx, Yahoo! Buzz, FriendFeed, Delicious, CoRank, Diigo, etc.) comment feeds to provide a consolidated view.
