Link Friday: The NFL Edition

Posted on Thursday, September 4, 2014 by Kate

Are you ready for some football? The regular season is finally here!

  • Have a look at the NFL teams with the highest social media acumen (based on fans and followers).
  • Did you know pro athletes have their own social network these days? It’s called Sqor (pronounced “score”) and believe it or not, Brett Favre is on the board of directors (until he decides to retire and then unretire, anyway).
  • NFL commish Roger Goodell got a good old fashioned (or maybe new fashioned?) public shaming via social media in late August and policy changes in the NFL actually came of it. Further proof that the public’s influence via social media can be incredibly powerful.
  • And far be it from us to deny you some college football action in this Link Friday, so check out this list of the 50 best college football personalities to follow on Twitter (former Wisconsin Badgers coach Bret Bielema made the list. Discuss.).
