Facebook has launched a dedicated place for sports nerds to congregate and talk about balls; the Facebook Sports Stadium lets fans to celebrate, commiserate and talk trash with their friends and other sports fans.
Facebook’s product manager Steve Kafka said in a press release “Sports is a global interest that connects people around the world. This product makes connecting over sports more fun and engaging, and we will continue listening to feedback to make it even better.”
With Facebook Sports Stadium, all the content on Facebook related to the game is in one place, and it comes in real time and appears chronologically. You can see:
- Posts from your friends, and their comments on plays
- Posts and commentary from experts, like teams, leagues and journalists, with easy access to their Pages
- Live scores, stats and a play-by-play
- Game info, like where to find the game on TV
The experience is only available on iPhone in the States, but it will be rolling out to other platforms in the coming weeks.
