Sports in College Social Media
I keep an eye on the #NCState hashtag just to see what people talk about. It doesn’t take any quantitative analysis to see that people talk about sports, mostly. Whenever the Libraries’ social media profiles get a big inexplicable traffic spike, it usually indicates something of ours got mentioned on an online sports forum.
These tweets about the new library illustrate the prominence of sports in NC State-related tweeting. When our new football coach retweeted something from the University’s profile, it got 3 more retweets and 3 more favorites than the original. Coach D also has 1800 more followers than the official account.
Pretty rad that the new coach is into 3D printing!
