What makes Talk different?

Everything in Talk is based on our ongoing research into healthy online communities. It’s based on a clear vision to improve engagement online.

Just as with our other tool Ask, Talk is open source, decentralized, and free to use. You can read more about the benefits of open source software here.



Our plugin architecture gives publishers incredible flexibility to select the features that make sense for your community - either across your site, or on a single article.
