With the recent World Series, social media, yet again, made its presence known.
At lotus823, we see all the incredible ways social media can help a business or an individual professionally. We also see how much social media is expanding personal aspects of our lives, including hobbies like America’s favorite pastime.
Online Sports Media
Fanatic sports fans can yell and scream at the T.V. all they want, but no one hears their thoughts. Twitter and Facebook are giving fans the chance to root for their own team and interact with other fans. You can show how dedicated you are without even leaving your home. The biggest effect this can all have is on the sports franchises. Interacting with fans in this way can help improve fan-team relations or even improve sales of tickets and merchandise.
Facebook Vs. Twitter
Facebook gives great overall updates for fans that want to check on pre or post game information. Twitter, however, allows fans to communicate with other fans, sports commentators or writers, the actual sports franchises, or even players during the game. Sports writers, MLB baseball clubs and fans alike were using social media sites to tap into the 2011 World Series content during these last few weeks of October.
