Chevy is sponsoring the official Disrupt Social Hub which captures the news, images and conversation straight from Disrupt and as well as the social buzz and editorial content following the conference.
The Disrupt Social Hub provides a central place for Disrupt attendees and those interested in conference to follow the Tweets, Facebook posts and Instagrams from the event in real-time, while also featuring relevant editorial and social content from Chevy.
Jessica Brunner, Sales Development Manager for AOL/TechCrunch explained, “AOL is thrilled to once again utilize Livefyre’s Social Native Advertising offering, this time for TechCrunch Disrupt. The Chevy Disrupt Social Hub is a unique way for us to enable our lead sponsor to engage in social conversation with the investors, entrepreneurs and journalists following the announcements, news and trends coming out of this year’s Disrupt Conference.”
Breaking news from TechCrunch editors who are covering the event as well as tweets, vines and Instagram images from both editors and attendees will also be prominently featured to surface the best content from the event. The Hub will also feature which Disrupt articles are trending across TechCrunch, relevant technology articles by the Chevy team and original posts from Chevy fans as part of its “Find New Roads” campaign.

Livefyre is enabling Chevy to integrate their paid, owned and earned media in a relevant, authentic way that provides value for the TechCrunch Disrupt audience. In the short three weeks since launching our Social Native Ad Solutions, we have received overwhelming interest from both brands and publishers.”
