Emotify is live on over 60,000 stories, collectively capturing over 2 million reactions and over 1.5 million re-engagements on the websites.
Being a part of ever growing Emotify family, our users inspired us to work with even more intensity and we never stopped since. Today we are very excited to tell you that we have reached another big milestone in our journey. With all pleasure, I wanna introduce you with Emotify 2.0 – A bigger and better Emotify. As a product, this is where we wanted to reach in order to create the best user engagement tool for our users. We have incorporated lots of feedback we received from our users and added some major new features and improved our existing Emotify features as well. Here is a detailed overview:
Once Emotify setup is fully complete, you’ll start seeing Emotify Reaction Widget appear below the stories on your website. This widget has lots of built in tools and feature to help website visitors react on the stories with emotions and engage them better with the website content. Emotify widget has various useful components to engage website visitors. Here are some of the key feature additions and improvements we have done in Emotify reaction widget.
When user reacts to a story on the website, Emotify suggests them some more stories based on their current reaction. This comes from our powerful and improved recommendation engine, Emotify Re-engage, which uses machine learning to suggest stories according to users current reaction rather than some soulless metric. A different set of stories is suggested on different reactions which are picked to catch the maximum attention of users and improve website’s content visibility, personalization, and engagement.
Reaction Feed is a real-time feed of all the Text reactions submitted on a website. It is hidden under small Emotify icon on the right side of the page and opens up automatically on click of submit button of Text Reaction. Reaction feed contains text reaction along with the respective story links. This works as a powerful tool to let visitors discover and engage with more stories on the website by attracting their attention with reactions submitted by other visitors on various stories. Website admins can moderate Reaction feed from Emotify dashboard by removing unsuitable reactions from the feed.
Emotify has added a whole new meaning to social sharing with Reaction sharing features. With Emotify users can share their reactions along with the story link on Facebook and twitter. Theses added reactions helps shared content attract more attention and engagements from users social media circle thus bringing more values out of social sharing for the website. This also makes the entire social sharing experience more delightful for the users. Website admins can track website and story level social sharing numbers on Emotify Dashboard.
Dynamic Re-engage Label
This is a small but very interesting component of Emotify Re-engage which makes the mood-based story suggestions even more personalized for the website visitors. Emotify Re-engage is designed in such a way that even the label that appears with the suggested stories is in sync with the reaction of the user. For ex. if the users express Excited on a story, they’d be suggested with more exciting stories and the label will read “More stories to up your excitement”. Website admins can control whether to show the dynamic or static label in Emotify Re-engage.
Emotify API V2
With the improved and bigger version of Emotify – Emotify 2.0, we are also introducing faster, better and more secure Emotify API 2.0.

We have also introduced smart caching in this version in order to make Emotify work fast and smooth on your website.
Multiple Language Support
At Emotify we celebrate the diversity of language over the internet. To ensure the fully native experience of Emotify on our users’ website, the widget supports multiple languages. Currently, we support English, French, german and Spanish. Soon you’ll see more language options.

The Emotify score is a multipoint metric and takes into account multiple parameters like the number of reactions, re-engagements, text reactions, share, time etc to measure the relative influence of the stories compared to the others in a 30 day period.
