Switched to using Livefyre for Comments

This post contains affiliate links.

I will be converting my flagship site to Livefyre in the upcoming weeks based on research looking at external comment managing systems and which one I think is the best fit for DragonBlogger.com

To prep for this transition I decided to install Livefyre here on my personal blog and leave it in place for a while to see how it fares.  Livefyre has many features that I wanted to retain while hopefully reducing the number of spam / bogus comments I will receive.

I saw that Biz Chick Blogs had converted over to Livefyre a few months back and it looked good over there.

I really liked that Livefyre gave you the ability to set custom emails based on comment type and allowed you to set other Livefyre members to become moderators of your comments which is a great feature for multi-author blogs.

So what do you think of the Livefyre comment system, has anybody else used it yet and what are the pros and cons you have experienced?
