The Growing Impact of Social Media On Sports (Infographic)

Source: Betting Sites

The drastic change in the social media landscape over the last ten years has had a major impact on all aspects of our lives and sports industry is in no way an exception.

Today, sports events and social media go hand in hand. We’re witnessing an era where every team, league, or sports association has at least one social media profile where they announce all important information. Moreover, it became impossible to scroll down your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram account during a major sports event and not have your news feed overwhelmed with information, real-time gifs, vines, or memes about it. Also, almost every sports event or show has a related hashtag which creates a relationship with the audience and brings a fast response. Athletes use social media to establish their name, communicate with their fans, announce their activities, and even promote brands and make money, as they have millions of followers.

The infographic below, created by the Betting Sites team, will help you understand the growing impact of social media on sports and learn many interesting facts that you probably didn’t know.

Which Sports League Sees the Most Action on Instagram?

Source: statista.com

The National Basketball Association (NBA) is the major sports league with most action on Instagram. According to data provided by InfluencerDB, the number of hashtags #NBA peaked at around 27.9k in June when the Golden State Warriors won the 2017 NBA Championship, defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals.

Even the National Football League (NFL) couldn’t beat this, accumulating 16.7k #NFL hashtags with the final games having been played in January 2017. The monthly count for September is slightly higher, standing at 17.5k. Maybe #NBA beats #NFL because the audience is sitting closer to the action during the games and smartphone photos yield better results that way.

Social Media Aggregation – The Follr Social Wall Explained

One of the more irritating things about the social web is that everything is everywhere. You can get great information from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube but you have to visit them individually to see all of your teams social media content. Unless, that is, your Website is a Follr Community.

Every Follr Community includes two versions of Social Wall, our content aggregation feature. On the home page you see the communitites own social media content:

Social Wall Home Page

It shows a real time feed of tweets, blog posts, videos and posts from all the major social networks giving you one place to see everything.

If you click the ‘Social Media’ link in the menu:

Social Wall Menu Link

you get to see an even more extensive aggregation of social media which additionally includes all content from the communities parent and associated content providers:

Social Wall Inner Page

Of course all of the content is responsive which means it will display on your mobile phone or tablet.
