Disqus vs LiveFyre: What are the differences?
What is Disqus? Elevating the discussion, anywhere on the web. Disqus looks to make it very easy and rewarding for people to interact on websites using its system. Commenters can build reputation and carry their contributions from one website to the next.
What is LiveFyre? We make your site social. Livefyre’s real-time apps get your audience talking and turn your site into the hub for your community. Bloggers, brands and the largest publishers in the world use Livefyre to engage their users and curate live content from around the social web.

Some of the features offered by Disqus are:
- Clean & Intuitive- We designed the platform to be clutter-free, which keeps people's eyes focused on the discussion itself.
- Fully real-time Live discussions- Discussions unfold in real-time. Comments stream as they are posted and user activity indicates life on your website.

Have been using Disqus for a long time now, and have always been satisfied. Occasionally it's been a little slow to load, but I think it's gotten better over time. The UI has improved over time, too. Very easy to integrate into my Ghost blog, and complements it well in terms of styling. Very happy with it.
Disqus is a wonderful (and free) API/software platform to integrate for comments when you don't want to limit yourself to Facebook and have no interest in reinventing something done so well.
It is a solid, A-1 piece of software.

Disqus is a nice well-known and easy to use commenting engine, plays well with most any web-facing integration.
A blog without a database generally needs an offsite commenting system. Disqus is mine.
