March may be almost over but the Madness is not! We couldn’t help but post a “round two” of March Madness Link Friday. Check out some ways companies are participating this year.
There’s less than two weeks left of the tournament, so enjoy!
No matter what your level of sports expertise or interest in basketball, March Madness is famously the one sporting event everyone can enjoy. Here’s what’s happening in social media this March!
- Facebook is finally partaking in the Madness with a social application, Fanhood’s March Madness Brackets.
- Twitter’s “instant replay” concept will allow users to catch highlights from all of the tournament games within minutes of them happening.
- Are you one of those people who bases your bracket on favorite uniforms? Coolest mascot? Or another silly-but-entertaining measure? Well this bracket uses “Klout Scores,” ranking each of the teams by their social media influence.
- But most importantly, these apps (and these!) will help you win your March Madness pool.
So tell us… who do you have winning it all?

Thanks to the internet, consumers are becoming increasingly more self-sufficient, relying less and less on the services of others. The declining use of travel agents is a perfect example of this. So why should you bother paying someone to do something you can do on your own for free?
Only time will tell if the demand for travel agents will outlast the world’s shift to digital; but for now, we recommend exploring the option of booking an agent. Happy Friday!
