BuzzFeed Distributed, a new social division of the publisher, is gearing up for its official launch with several new hires. The division, which will officially launch in the next few months, is a team dedicated to creating social content for a variety of emerging platforms like Vine, Snapchat and Instagram. BuzzFeed Distributed will “scale BuzzFeed’s deep understanding of the social web and why people share across other platforms,” said a release announcing the news.

  • Matt Bellassai, a BuzzFeed writer, joins the team as social web writer.
  • Adam Ellis, artist for BuzzFeed, joins as social web artist.
  • Jen Lewis, also an artist for BuzzFeed, joins as social web artist.
  • Kaye Toal, who previously managed social media at Goldieblox and Upworthy, joins as social web writer.
  • Lesley Steele, formerly a freelance designer for HBO and the Obama campaign, joins as associate designer and video producer.
  • Ellie Sunakawa, formerly a graphic designer for Vayner Media, joins BuzzFeed Distributed in the same role.
