TORONTO - May 3, 2016 - PRLog -- NodeBB, the Canadian company with the goal of modernizing Internet forums, is proud to power the community conversation around Flic, a simple and stylish wireless button that can trigger a variety of smartphone actions.

"We're very excited to have NodeBB as our platform for the Flic Community," says Joacim Westlund, Founder and CEO of Shortcut Labs, the company behind Flic. "In the first few weeks since we launched our forum, it's already proving to be an awesome way for people to provide ideas and feedback that will help us make the Flic experience even better."

Harnessing the power of a community who is passionate about innovative products like Flic is exactly what NodeBB is meant for. "Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter have large user bases and have gained a lot of popular attention, but they don't always provide the depth of conversation between consumers and companies that is possible in a community forum environment. We feel that forum software is due for a revival of sorts," says NodeBB co-founder Julian Lam.

To help facilitate that revival, NodeBB has been built from the ground up using modern, high-performance code. Unlike many older forum systems, NodeBB works perfectly on smartphones and tablets, and provides connections with a range of social web services. NodeBB is also easy to customize for a completely branded experience.

"We're very happy with NodeBB, and can see how it will grow with us as we grow," says Westlund.
