Facebook is the world’s biggest social network and it goes without saying that whenever there’s a major sporting event Facebook is one of the places where people share a lot of content. The social network’s own data says so. During the 2014 Super Bowl more than 50 million people joined in on the conversation and this time around the numbers might be higher.
This is probably one of the reasons why Facebook today announced the launch of a new Super Bowl experience that will give fans one place to connect in real time as they follow the big game between Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots.
At Facebook’s 2015 Super Bowl hub you will be able to see posts from people in your network, Friends and Groups basically, as well as real-time reactions from users around the world with Live Feed. Photos and videos shared by news outlets and by people lucky enough to be at the game will be present as well.
Posts from NFL, players, teams, NBC and “other public voices” will be available at In The Story. The Super Bowl hub will also provide live scores, current play time and play by play updates.
Check out Facebook’s preparations for the Super Bowl XLIX at facebook.com/superbowl or simply search Super Bowl in the social network’s search feature to find this hub.
