Way back in the days, many moons ago, in a land far, faaar away…
OK, I’m getting carried away.
I started the Springbok Rugby Sevens: The BlitzBokke FaceBook GROUP and later the FaceBook PAGE with the same name using my personal FaceBook Profile. When Twitter happened upon us, I linked my Twitter account @BlitzBokke to my FaceBook Profile. This irked a few of my non-Sevens-loving FaceBook Friends because of the ‘incessant’ (their words, not mine) Twitter updates whenever there was an HSBC Sevens World Series tournament.
While I have lost one or two because of this, I decided to look into finding a solution before a mass-exodus of my non-Sevens-loving FB Friends. You know how heck-tique it gets when the Boys play.
Today I registered another FaceBook Page dedicated to receive all the @BlitzBokke Twitter updates whenever there is a Tournament. Click here to view it.
I plan to link @BlitzBokke on Twitter to this Page a few hours before the first ball is kicked. This way my like-minded FB Friends can still access and receive my “live-and-as-it-happens” updates and I don’t have to double-post in both Twitter and FaceBook.
I’ll be testing it this weekend during the 2012 USA Sevens in Las Vegas so help a buddy out and let me know if and how it works out for you.
Just another attempt to use Social Media to support our Boys in Green & Gold.
I just got this post on FaceBook from Brider Loots
Thanx for all the effort u guyz do to keep me updated, I’m at uni so I can always watch if they play.
Schweet! We love this game, Brider. Happy to help out.
