You’re going to laugh at this site, but it’s a really great example of a community that’s obsessed with content.
It’s a live deer cam that shows a feeding station. Users are checking in daily and leaving tons of comments. They’re also taking screenshots of special moments they see on the deer camp and posting them for posterity. To date, they have over 5000 comments. Each post averages 4 or 5 replies and the same number of likes. I’d say a quarter of the posts have images in them too, which is well above the overall average. Fascinating community.
DowJones Local Media Group pushed us live on a few of their sites and this one is a good example. They don’t get a ton of traffic, but they’re really excited to be pulling tweets into their comments stream which was honestly what sold them on the product. Seems simple, but when you can demonstrate how much user generated commentary there really is around one’s content, you’ve done a great service.
ESPN is our largest customer. We’ve been live for almost a year now and as we head into March Madness, one of their peaks periods of traffic. Our forums will feature prominently in their strategy to get users to spend more time on ESPN.com.
The sheer complexity of how they’ve deployed the forums is too much to describe in this post but we are excited to be deploying our newest feature – user generated polls – just before March Madness. JetJaw provides the polls to us so we have them to thank for supporting us there.

We’ve revamped the Galleries product to be a little more engaging. Thanks to Arktan and StreamSentiment, we were able to put together the following demos of the Super Bowl, Grammy’s and the upcoming Oscars. By combining our Galleries product with our Comments product and feeding social media photos into the gallery, we’re able to create a pretty neat “before, during and after” experience of a large social media presence designed entirely around engaging photos.
