Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone! Today the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers in SuperBowl 47 in beautiful downtown New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Today friends, is the one day where millions of people will get together to watch the biggest football game of the year. With that we are sure to expect that there will be alot, and I mean ALOT, of Social Media activity amongst fans, brands, friends, family, even non sports fans. Not only is the Super Bowl the biggest sporting event of the year, but it is also the most watched television event of the year beating out the World Series, NBA Finals, and various annual Award Shows. The Super Bowl is the super event of Social TV. This year should be no different and will likely set new marks, measures, and records with regards to social media metrics, analytics, and web traffic.
If you’re like me, you’ll be watching the game tomorrow as well as following it online through various Social Media networks. To stay in the know, Sysomos created this sweet infographic which can serve as your complete Social Media guide to the Super Bowl. The infographic highlights the top Twitter fans for both the @49ers and the @Ravens, top players to follow on Twitter as well as top football reporters and bloggers.
