Games To Be First Reported By Social Media
The London Games will be the most tweeted, liked and tagged in history, with fans offered a never before seen insider's view of what many are calling the social media Olympics, or the "socialympics," says an Associated Press story. Hash tags, (at) signs and "like" symbols will be as prevalent as national flags, Olympic pins and medal ceremonies. Some athletes may spend more time on Twitter and Facebook than the playing field. Social-savvy fans, whether watching on television or inside the Olympic stadium itself, will be almost constantly online.
