Super Bowl XLVII: Follow the Social Media Game
Posted on January 31st 2013
On Sunday, February 3rd, the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens will compete against one another in Super Bowl XLVII. While the two football titans will soon clash on the gridiron, they are already going helmet to helmet on the social media playing field.
Arguably the biggest event in American sports, the NFL’s championship game is watched by millions of eager viewers every year. Before, during and after the momentous event, people will be taking to social to discuss the teams, plays and who they want to see holding up the big trophy when all is said and done.
In the interest of capturing the public sentiment about the big game, and perhaps even predicting its result, HootSuite has created the Super Bowl XLVII Command Center.
The one-on-one battles playing out on the turf are also playing out on Twitter and HootSuite will be comparing the Twitter mentions of the two teams, their quarterbacks and their coaches. We know the cheers and jeers in the stands will be amplified tenfold online, which is why this data will be accompanied by a Twitter sentiment tracker. Whether its “Enjoyment and Elation” or “Sadness and Grief,” this tracker will show what kind of emotions fans of the Ravens and 49ers can fit into less than 140 characters.
The Super Bowl XLVII Command Center also tracks:
- Recent tweets from each team’s official Twitter account
- The Facebook likes of each team
- The amount of people talking about each team on Facebook
This HootSuite creation is the perfect second screen for Super Bowl viewer interested in seeing what fellow fans across the globe are feeling during the game. But it may also be an indicator of who is going to walk away on top.
So support your team (it can’t hurt) or simply follow along with the Super Bowl XLVII Command Center.
