Why choose FastComments for adding live comments?

As an embed.ly supplier, FastComments offers APIs and other services that make it possible to incorporate comment threads into programmes that work with oEmbed. You don’t need to worry about these technical details, however, unless you want to create a custom integration that’s not Notion or Google Sites.

A Brief Demonstration of FastComments With Notion

You can easily build a conversation link by going to fastcomments.com/create while logged into your tenant. After you pick a name for the conversation, you can add it to your Notion page or any other application that works with embed.ly.

You can try embedding the following link in your document to test: fastcomments.com/c/demo
