ScribbleLive, also known as “Live”, is sunsetting. Recently, Rock Content announced the discontinuation of their live blogging software “Live” as part of their strategic refocus on purely content marketing solutions.

It was back in 2019 that Rock Content acquired ScribbleLive, a then widely used live blogging software platform that became Rock Content’s existing “Live” solution after the takeover.

Just like Live Center, “Live” addressed the news and media industry to help journalists deliver instant, live news updates to readers, however, RockContent felt that this was quite a side-step from their core activities and target audience.

Alternative live-blogging solutions and migration from ScribbleLive

In the face of ScribbleLive’s discontinuation, customers are naturally looking for alternatives. In a previous blog post “the 4 best live-blogging solutions for news & media” we looked at different live blogging solutions available on the market, which all come with their specialization.
In recent years, we have helped numerous customers migrate from ScribbleLive to Live Center, such as NTM or Gota Media, allowing customers to transfer previous content to the new platform using APIs. Based on our experience, we have created a migration plan to help organizations seamlessly move over to Live Center in under 30 minutes.
