Lithium Acquires Community Moderation Know-how from Keibi Technologies
"Today, Lithium Technologies, a major provider of enterprise community
platforms, announced their acquisition of Keibi Technologies,
developer of automated content discovery, analysis, and moderation for
online communities. While Keibi may not be a particularly large
addition to Lithium, the melding of the two is something of a match
made in heaven.
When trying to develop healthy communities, such as the official
Barnes & Noble book clubs or SalesForce developer community it built,
Lithium should find Keibi's tools for wrangling user generated content
The foremost use of Keibi's technology to date is in AOL-owned Bebo.
Since being founded in 2006, it received $5 million in series A
funding from Hunt Ventures and Catamount Ventures. Lithium is
considerably older, with its own blog and forum-centric offering
having been in the market since 1999."
