August 5th was the beginning of yet another olympic games. There was no doubt that I was very excited to watch athletes from all over the world compete for gold, silver and bronze. I was even more excited to see all of my fellow Georgia Bulldawgs compete. Unfortunately, I ran into one large problem… I was lacking cable. Whoops.
I tried to looking for any way to watch these olympic games when finally I realized oh wait… I have so many other ways to connect than just watching these on a television. I immediately found an app created by NBC that could keep me updated on any event I wanted to know about.
Along with this awesome way to stay connected to the competition, I realized that by following a few news and sports pages on Facebook I was receiving updates instantly after the United States won a medal, some of my favorite athletes won an event, etc.
So despite not having cable (and no plan to get it anytime soon), social media updates and posts have allowed me to keep track of these olympic games better than any in the past. That made for one happy fan right here:)
