Hey Product Hunt!! Thanks to @nivo0o0 for hunting us :)

**EDIT** WE have renamed to Comma https://commaful.com (formerly known as Pencil/UsePencil)

Really excited to share our beta of Comma.



@rchktk and I want to build a story-telling platform for the next generation. We believe the fun, visual form factor makes posts easy to make and easy to consume. That's where Comma comes in.

Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback on the Comma product!!

Here are some stories I’d recommend checking some of these out to get started (just CLICK ON THE GIF to view):

An Interview with Polymail Founder, @foolywk!


“200+ Podcasts, 100+ Articles, 20+ Books…. In 11 Bullet Points” by @dakotashane_nun


An Interview with Foursquare Founder, @dens


The 3 Year Job Search and How I Got Into Tech by @nivo0o0


Chat with Co-Founder of LinkedIn, Allen Blue


Look forward to hearing from the PH community!

@sydney_liu_sl awesome work! I've seen this in action for a while now and great to see it finally out there.

Founders need to tell a great story, tools like Pencil can give someone a little spin and creativity to stand out.

I wonder if we will see this used in Investor Updates 😏

Sydney Liu — Co-Founder of Commaful
@bentossell Thanks a bunch Ben!! we've had pitch decks made on this before haha, so investor updates will be interesting!! Internally, I think we'll be using it for everything :D
Ben Tossell — Community Lead, Product Hunt
@sydney_liu_sl awesome I cant wait to see the use-cases come out :)

@sydney_liu_sl @rchktk I love it! I definitely will use it.

Did you think about having options for the last slide, like adding a custom link to follow or other CTA?
M
Sydney Liu — Co-Founder of Commaful
@leonelmore @rchktk People often use the second to last slide for that purpose right now. Any link pasted turns into a url. We will definitely build more customizability down the line. Esp when we start working with brands
JB — Founder
@sydney_liu_sl @leonelmore @rchktk Have you considered creating Sports Gif Highlight Recaps.. Presenting the players individual stats and marketing this.. I would love to see this every morning in my Twitter feed! Would require a lot of work and possible participation from Major Sports Leagues to provide the daily gifs and stats! Thanks again for the great service/product!

@jay_bee12345 @rchktk That's a great idea!! We've actually noticed that highlights look pretty nice on Pencil (whether it's events or sports). Will noodle more on it!!

@sydney_liu_sl @rchktk congrats on getting featured... I remember using it quite a while ago and have been following some of the pencil posts...
They are cool...
Good to see ​*interview with xyz*​ pencils:+1:

@exexzian @rchktk thanks a bunch!!! awesome to hear!! Any people you'd like to see interviewed?
JB — Founder
@sydney_liu_sl @nivo0o0 @rchktk @foolywk @dakotashane_nun @dens Possible new usage for pencil!: Combination/Cross-Promotional Product Advertising.. So basically anyone on PH could post a gif related to their product and a link to their product (along with description) as a page of the Pencil Story in combination with other product creators.. to cross market all of their products to each of their relevant social media audiences.. Creating new user marketing opportunities, content, and partnerships amongst creators.. I suggest partnering in groups of 6 products for the perfect short story of product references.. Best regards to everyone's success!
Thanks,

@jay_bee12345 huh very interesting. So the idea is instead of me sending to just my network, there could be 5 people sharing 5 companies across 5 whole networks?
JB — Founder
@sydney_liu_sl Exactly.. Thanks for crunching the numbers! ;)

Christian Puricelli — Founder, MyNews.is
@sydney_liu_sl Congrats, it's amazing! I started working on something almost the same a while ago, but only as a side project, and I never really found the time to finish it :( Luckily you came around, as the world really needed something like this!
M
Sydney Liu — Co-Founder of Commaful
@cpuricelli Thanks a bunch!! Did you learn anything interesting while building the side project? :)
Christian Puricelli — Founder, MyNews.is
@sydney_liu_sl not really as I didn't really started it much. If we want we can have a chat on skype or meet the next time I'm in SF.
