Social Interaction

Enable dynamic conversations around content with unlimited scalability.


Social media is now an expected feature of nearly any Web property.

Most corporate websites today incorporate some kind of social media — ranging from just a link to a corporate Facebook page to incorporating social tools like commenting, rating, polls and forums.

As the amount of user activity grows, however, maintaining optimal performance can be a major challenge, especially when social content is being republished in real time.

CoreMedia enables companies to create vibrant conversations around their products and brands.

With CoreMedia’s Elastic Social software, companies can maintain the connection and discussion with their audience, their way. And do it all on a high-performance platform that scales to accommodate any number of social contributors without impacting the overall performance of your Web properties.
