SAN FRANCISCO, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- coComment, the leading platform for managing, powering and researching conversations online, today announced they signed endorsement partnerships with the flirtatious philologist Marina from HotForWords and outspoken Danny Bonaduce, child actor and famed host of 97.1 Free FM in Los Angeles.
The pair will be using coComment to keep track of their numerous comments across the web and to provide an easy way for their audiences to follow them wherever they go.
The mix leverages the true draw from each celebrity's niche. Fans will be able to track Marina's unique etymology comments and tune in to Danny's outrageous opinions in an effort to not miss their participation across the web and to keep the great conversations rolling. coComment is offering fans of the more traditional video and radio mediums a window into online conversations anywhere and in any fashion, while liberating dialogues of all topics on the web.
"It's easy to see what someone says on their own site but that really misses all their activity elsewhere. We're going to help them show their fans everything they have to say," said Matt Colebourne, CEO of coComment. "I think this initiative will bring these great and controversial conversations to more people on the web, further expanding their fan base and their ability to share their content with the online world."
coComment allows users to track their conversations, others' conversations, site and topic specific conversations and to consolidate and reuse them as they see fit. The company gives users a platform for tracking subjects, responses and conversations all in one place, and allows publishers the opportunity to engage their users with more impact. The technology brings more content to more people, expanding conversations and propagating content for the benefit of both users and publishers -- regardless of medium.
"Integrate: comes from the Latin word integratus and means to bring together or incorporate into a whole," expressed Marina. "coComment will allow me to expand my education techniques to even more people and allow me to increase the proper use of the English language."
"It's worth it all to me just to be in the same sentence as the sexy wordsmith, Marina," commented Danny. "Using coComment will essentially let me give 'the bird' to anyone who wants to censor me or any of my fans and lets me take my views to people all over the world."
Matt added that, "coComment is all about creating flexibility and freedom on the web. We look forward to implementing a campaign that will broaden and challenge these capabilities."
