Bringing the annotations to the social media age
Graffitify is next-generation social commenting that lets users write directly on top of content - including text, pictures and videos. We created innovative platform where users can write comments on top of every website.
DEVELOPMENT TEAM THAT THINK OUT OF THE BOX
Mike wanted to improve the discussions and comment section of websites by taking the social media experience outside the confines of each social media platform and bring comments and discussion directly to the content. Mike had the idea and was looking for someone who can turn his ideas into reality.
MEETING THE BUSINESS NEEDS WITHIN BUDGET AND DEADLINE
The goal was to create a software where users can interact with the content and other users on top of any website. Users should be able to integrate with their favourite social media, and post content from Graffitify to the social media sites.
Users should login with their social media accounts or email address
Create a system where users can browse for websites and create posts on top of them
Create a place where users can see all trending content, see people profiles and see notifications
- Created posts should be integrated with the social media, and other users can interact with them (comment, doodle, like, dislike, share etc…) Comments
Users should be able to filter content based on different tags users are interested in
NEXT GENERATION SOCIAL COMMENTING PLATFORM
We created an api using Node.js that powers all social media features, from social login and integration to post and annotation creation. Using iframes and live rewrite server technology we were able to capture a content of any website and display posts, comments and other content. We created cross browser extension, that allowed users to bring our system with them on any website. Web app called “Trendly” was created so users can see trending content, edit their profile, add friends and check notifications from the sources they follow.
