Social Media And The Social Connected Sports Fan
Sports and social media seem to be a perfect match. These days sport fans are using social media to stay connected to the games, clubs and their heroes.
No need to turn on the radio or watch the latest sport summary. With the rapid social news outlets like Twitter and being connected all the time through mobile it’s a match made in heaven.
