You’re probably wondering what CoverItLive (CIL) is and why I am sharing information about it. Well, CIL is one of four live blogging applications that allow people to share information in real-time. I have a special fondness of the company because it was the program that made me fall in love with live blogging. No, they are not paying me to say this although I wish they would. Anyway, following are 3 quick updates about CoverItLive.
- They were recently acquired by Demand Media. What started out as an idea to add a new dimension to blogging has grown to new levels on so many levels.
- CoverItLive has upgraded their audience engagement tools to include trivia and points. Also, their new gaming tools allows readers to vote on Live Polls and Facebook
- The company has gone mobile. CIL is live on Android. Now, I need them to make it Blackberry friendly
Those are just a few new developments about CoverItLive. Have you learned of any new happenings at the company?
