I think they might be a social media consulting company, do you know what business they are in? I have spent hours trying to figure that out.
Yes they have good numbers.
Does anyone know what business LVWD is in?
I see good results, but after 30 mins of trying very hard on their website, etc, watching Vimeo vodeos, etyc have no clue as to what their business is.
This is likely depressing the stock. I think it is a new record for me to spend 30 mins on a company and not know what they do to make money.
Are they a contract customer service agency?
TERRIBLE SELF EXPLANATION BY COMPANY!!

SAN JOSE, Calif. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
LiveWorld, Inc. (OTC Markets: LVWD), the leading social customer experience company announced today the addition of Arthur A. Ushijima, CEO and President of The Queen’s Health Systems (Queen’s), Michael A. Gold, former CEO and President of Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA), and Barry Weinman, Co-founder and former Managing Director of Allegis Capital and AVI Group, to its Board of Directors.
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180425006300/en/
The newest members of LiveWorld’s Board of Directors bolster the company’s expanding business of consulting services (strategy, adverse events management, moderation, engagement), and conversation management software in the healthcare and pharma markets. LiveWorld’s pharma and healthcare business grew 20%/year over 2016 and 2017. LiveWorld will further expand its suite of marketing, customer service, and operational solutions to help healthcare providers improve the patient experience by having a more engaging presence in social media, messaging apps, and on mobile devices.
“We welcome the insights and experience from Arthur, Michael, and Barry, as LiveWorld sharpens our focus on using 1to1 real-time conversations to improve the patient journey,” said Peter Friedman, Chairman and CEO, LiveWorld. “Their deep expertise in strategic business management, health services, and technology will strengthen our ability to innovate new solutions, enter new markets, and increase revenue.”
Ushijima is a healthcare executive with more than 40 years of experience managing and leading hospitals and health systems in five different states. For the past 28 years, he has been with The Queen's Medical Center, which is the parent corporation for more than 10 healthcare and real estate companies.
In addition to serving as a member of Queen’s internal boards, he serves on a start-up board, Kineticor, which is commercializing a novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) motion-correction technology developed by the University of Hawaii and Queen’s. Ushijima also established a novel position emission tomography (PET) joint venture with Hamamatsu Photonics of Japan, which brought the first PET scanner to Hawaii twenty years ago. He serves on the joint venture management committee.
His past corporate board service includes Vizient, Inc. (formerly VHA, Inc.), which is the nation’s largest group purchasing organization with more than 60 billion dollars in medical supply and equipment spend, representing more than 2,000 hospitals. He has served on the boards of numerous charitable organizations and trade associations.
Also, Ushijima was recognized as Pacific Business News Leader of the Year in 2013 and Hawaii Business Magazine’s CEO of the Year in 2014.
“It’s an honor to work with LiveWorld to deploy conversation engagement programs that will maximize the efficiency of communication in hospitals,” says Ushijima. “Hospitals utilizing an effective messaging channel that integrates human agents and automation provides an invaluable resource that will greatly enrich the patient experience.”
Michael A. Gold was the CEO and President of HMSA until he retired at the conclusion of 2017. During his 43-year career at HMSA, he also served at the Chief Operating Officer and its Executive Vice President and Assistant Treasurer. Throughout his illustrious career working for HMSA, he gained extensive knowledge in underwriting, marketing, provider services, customer relations, account services, community relations, and corporate planning.
Gold is recognized as a visionary whose new ideas and practices have improved the health and well-being of Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association members and everyone in Hawaii. Those accomplishments during his tenure include: creating HMSA’s Online Care®, the first telehealth system in the nation offered by a health insurer, introducing Blue Zones Project® to Hawaii, a communitywide initiative to help make the healthy choice the easy choice for everyone in the state, partnering with digital health care leaders to put all of a person’s health on a single digital platform, and establishing HMSA Centers, state-of-the-art spaces that bring HMSA into communities and closer to members for servicing, sales, and educational programs.
“In 2017 we made concerted efforts to expand our footprint in the healthcare markets,” said David Houston, Chief Financial Officer of LiveWorld. “We saw our new revenue in healthcare grow by approximately 24% in the year. This growth came from new and existing relationships in pharma, as well as, new client relationships with insurance providers and hospitals.”
Numbers here are getting worse and worse it seems. Cash position shrinking big time. Management are indeed morons it seems.
Yes I still own shares here. Waiting for the turn around on their revenue growth.
This sounds really good. Are you still in?

Company doesn't do anything. Cool new program fluff PR's with no impact to revenue. CEO is a moron
Going back down lately, too bad. I thought it could at least stabilize in the high single digits.
They, the management collect a paycheck that's it, not fraud but close.
I'm with you there. Company hasn't done anything relevant since going public but with an average under .04, even a price of .08 is huge gain for me.
Are you kidding this stock has done nothing for 20 years."Takes Time" It's almost impossible to be that bad.
I had a webex with Peter and David a few months ago. Got to talk with them live via webcam. Good experience and was happy they took time out of their schedule to talk to me. The future objectives are set and they are working diligently to get there. This particular market that LiveWorld is a part of is young - give it time and it will reward imo.
Haven't been a big shareholder for a long time. Way too many quarterly disappointments here. LVWD has to be the only company that could be profitable...but instead keeps investing for growth...yet the growth never comes.
No, didn't get anything but then again I guess only the big shareholders like yourself would get something like that?
I rec'd it, no emails yet
Wasn't much to the letter. The CFO introduced himself and asked for my email as they were looking to communicate more with shareholders. Nobody else received a similar letter? Maybe they already had most of your email addresses. Anyone receive any emails from them yet?
Can you share the letter with us? very interesting. You think they would post a letter to shareholders in a press release.... wth.
Yeah I'm watching. Still have all of my shares but not selling at this level. Hopefully we can break .10 next run and stay above it
Yes the penny market sure is on fire lately. Would be good to see LVWD in the teens again.
I've bought back a few of the shares I sold at .07+. Interesting there's a 500K bid at .045 this morning (not me ha).
Anyone else get a letter from the CFO last week? They had my street address but not my email. Said something about wanting to communicate more with shareholders. Maybe some hope for 2017?
Stock market on fire lately. Have seen lots of junky penny stocks flying. Wish LVWD would put out some news. The right PR could send this one to .10+ in this hot market.
Anybody watching lately? There has been some good buying going on and some solid bids like now at 045.
Of course I'm still buying and accumulating. The buying at .07+ is all being held and it was orchestrated by institutional market makers, not retail. The sells down here are small fish compared to what went through at higher prices. Not worried. I'm actively in talks with the company and well informed of the future direction. I would suggest doing the same as an investor.
Saw LVWD back to .045 X .05 this morning. You buying? It's puzzling that whoever was buying all those shares at .07+ doesn't seem to have any interest now.
Very strange. If you want to sell, put up a few smaller blocks at .08-.10. Not one huge block at .075. Party pooper!
