Social media giant, Facebook says sports fans around the world can now connect with each other on its platform with launch of its Sports stadium.
Facebook Sports Stadium is a special feature that brings live sports activities from all over the world closer to the sports fans.
Steve Kafta, Product Manager says that Facebook Sports Stadium is a dedicated place to experience sports in real-time with friends and the world.
‘’ With 650 million sports fans, Facebook is the world’s largest stadium. People already turn to Facebook to celebrate, commiserate, and talk trash with their friends and other fans’’, the social media website says.
‘’Now we’ve built a place devoted to sports so you can get the feeling you’re watching the game with your friends even when you aren’t together. 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.
Facebook Sport Stadium allows users of the social networking website to:
- 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 feature has already been rolled out with American football games and will support other sports around the world like basketball, soccer, and more soon. The experience is available now on iPhone in the US, and will expand to other platforms in the coming weeks, according to the company.
