Livefyre Acquires Storify to Expand Its Social-Media Curation Platform
Posted: 9/9/2013  |  By: Mathew Ingram | GigaOM
Livefyre, a provider of comment-hosting tools for online publishers that has been expanding into other areas of social content, has agreed to acquire Storify — a service that allows users to curate conversations from Twitter, Facebook and other social networks. The price of the acquisition wasn’t announced because both companies are privately held, but in an interview with Gigaom prior to the sale, Storify founder Burt Herman said the entire Storify team will be moving over to Livefyre and the social-curation service will remain unchanged.
