NC Tech Company Launches “SpokeHub” – Social Media Platform Inspiring The Next Generation

Durham, NC – SpokeHub is group-based media engagement platform that gives users the ability to create or join public or private rooms (hubs) around trending topics or areas of interest.

What makes SpokeHub different? SpokeHub’s innovative technology and ability to provide safe places for users (or as we say “hubsters”) to express their views with like minded individuals.

This Durham based Tech company welcomed hubsters on June 8, 2017 and is available for download in all Apple App or Google Play stores. SpokeHub will allow more effective and engaging communication with hubsters throughout the globe while providing opportunities for business and celebrities to have a direct access to their fan-base with rapid analytics offered to paying users for targeted marketing.

When you think about social media nowadays users just scroll through content that may or may not be of interest to them – one person is posting about a game, another a kindergarten graduation, and a third posts a crock pot recipe.

What would our interactions look like if we could have true two-way conversation about topics of interest or even agree to disagree? Through SpokeHub we may connect the world again through conversation. Bringing real connection to a social space.

SpokeHub is led by Chief Executive Officer Robert Hartsfield, Jr., who has extensive leadership experience within the software industry. His experience and ability to be forward thinking has allowed SpokeHub to move rapidly after the app released with strong networking connections that compose the company’s aggressive go-to-market strategy. Rob has built a team with over 50 years of combined experience in sales, technology, business development and marketing.

Social media is a platform where EVERYONE deserves a voice and SpokeHub will continue to expand that opportunity by acknowledging the extreme need and desire for all hubsters to speak out, be heard, and remain engaged in real-time. Join the conversation by downloading the app now.

The next big thing is here!

One thought on “NC Tech Company Launches “SpokeHub” – Social Media Platform Inspiring The Next Generation

  1. Really??? Defectors of Avalara that worked on their new biz on Avalara time? No kudos to this “business”. I love how lackies at Avalara are now Vice Presidents of this newbie. A skeptical observer has to question their commitment /integrity if Robert, their founder, who completely abandoned the company for which he is claiming fame.
