LiveNation Labs has acquired social search startup YourTrove for an undisclosed amount of funding. YourTrove co-founders Seth Blank, Nick Vlku, and Jesse Emery will be joining the LiveNation team.
YourTrove is known for working as a search engine that searched for Facebook status updates, shared links, photos of a user, and a user’s social graph.
?The acquisition of YourTrove has given us two things: expertise in big data engineering, social network API?s and overall technical prowess, and the technology from YourTrove that will help us power the next generation of what concerts should be for a music fan,? said LiveNation Labs VP Ethan Kaplan in a blog post.
