Echo's New "Recent Comments Widget"Echo, a service that allows you to share your content and watch the live reaction in real-time, just announced a real-time Recent Comments Widget this week.
Publishers can quickly embed Echo on any site and turn their static pages into a real-time stream of diggs, tweets, facebook updates, comments and more. With this new release, publishers have an even more powerful tool at their fingertips to help increase traffic, engagement and time spent on a site.
Static home pages fail to show the vibrant, community activity occurring on a site. Echo's new real-time recent comments reveals the velocity of social activity across the site -- driving readers to where the activity is now. The stream includes Comments, Tweets and other social reactions from across the web. Each reaction is displayed with the visitor's avatar, linkable title to the article, the first few lines of the comment, and the source of the content (E.g. Echo, Twitter, etc.).
The widget is designed to be displayed on site sidebars and on home pages, turning static web pages into vibrant real-time experiences, driving Facebook style engagement on publishers' sites.
Publishers can customize the widget to display reactions across the site or on a section by section basis. Any combination of Comments, Tweets, Diggs, etc. can also be added or removed from the stream. You can install the widget by signing up for an Echo Pro Trial account and installing both the Comments and Recent Comments widget on your site.
