All Things Digital’s D11 Conference kicks off today amidst the sunshine and beach views of Rancho Palos Verdes. Apple CEO Tim Cook, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, Pinterest Co-Founder Ben Silbermann and many more tech luminaries are gathering down south for two sold-out days of panels and pool-side parties hosted by All Things D’s own Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg. No ticket? No problem – you can follow all the action at the event, from tweets to Instagram photos to Kara’s vines of Jack Dorsey-style side profiles on the D11 Social Hub, powered by Livefyre.
“Each year at D:All Things Digital we bring together the most innovative minds in the media and technology space. We wanted to create an online destination where our attendees and readers could follow what’s happening at the conference in real-time and share their thoughts, reactions and social commentary in a visually social format,” said Lia Lorenzano-Kennett, General Manager, D: All Things Digital. “With the D11 Social Hub, anyone can follow the big announcements, memorable quotes and key insights that are sure to come from this year’s sold-out event.”
The D11 Social Hub is one example of how Livefyre can bring a new interactive information layer to live events, conferences, award shows, sporting events, and contest campaigns. With Social Hub the conversation taking place around an event on social media can be pulled back to one place, allowing everyone to join in a visually engaging format and share their contributions with their own networks.
Over the next two days the D11 Social Hub will curate social content from AllThingsD editors, D11 attendees, keynote speakers, and your contributions. Join the D11 conversation by including #D11 in your tweets and Instagram photos and track everything that is going on at http://allthingsd.com/d11socialhub/.
