NEW YORK, July 29, 2020 — OpenWeb, a leading audience engagement and conversation platform is launching Community Feed, enabling publishers to harness the power of social media on their own sites.

“With media consumption at all-time highs and the public seeking safer places to engage, OpenWeb is creating powerful solutions that also benefit publishers. Community Feed combines a social-feed-like experience with higher standards for quality, and encourages users to discover more content and conversations without the toxicity,” said Nadav Shoval, OpenWeb’s CEO and Co-Founder. “Community Feed creates a virtuous cycle that keeps audiences on-site longer, encourages quality discourse and discovery, and supports publisher sustainability.”

Features & Highlights of OpenWeb’s Community Feed:

  • Journalists, editors, and users can create topical posts that live outside of individual articles, allowing conversations to live and thrive longer. 
  • Customized moderation capabilities and rigorous standards ensure the highest quality dialogue between users and journalists. 
  • Advanced recommendation algorithms surface engagement-driven, trending, and relevant content into a seamless social experience. 43% of commenters are reading similar articles discovered through the Feed during the same session.
