World Cup 2010 has just started in South Africa. And the hype is almost everywhere in the world. And you know, the best part is, now we can share and hear thoughts of World Cup from all over the world because we had Social Media now! Awesome, isnt it?
We had Twitter now. I think Twitter really know how to make this event more bigger in social media era. They made a special World Cup edition, the place where we can see live tweet from all over the world each game. The football player, they can connect to their fans and share their thougts about the event and we can give a support directly. Plus, the Trending Topics are just the best part where we can hear 'voice' from all over the world about the trends, interactively.
And Foursquare? Foursquare know that this event, a World Cup is a once in a lifetime event. So they made it, yes, a special badge for user who come and join the party at South Africa! and that is awesome, unless we can remote check in, i hope not. Work together with CNN, they made a two special badges for user who came into the stadium. And they make it World Cup more playful.
So, there is no reason for people to not enjoy and celebrate this great event. Even the one who couldn't enjoy the game, social media 'forced' them to join the conversation. This is awesome, isn't it?
Enjoy the game! Cheers!!
