Tech Tuesday: Discovering Facebook’s Sports Section


(WTNH) — The biggest sports game of the year, the Super Bowl, played out across your television sets and social media this past weekend. Sports are always the most social live event. Fans get competitive and conversational about their favorite team. Globally, more than 62 million people had over 270 million Super Bowl-related interactions — whether that’s commenting on a post, taking a poll, engaging with a video or sharing a photo.

Facebook doesn’t have the rights from the NFL to stream the Super Bowl live, however, they do have a few sporting events that Facebook users can watch live. Facebook Watch is another component of longer-form video content that the platform offers. As far as sports content, Facebook Watch is featuring the Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s documentary called ‘Tom vs. Time’ as well as video content to re-watch of various sporting events.Related Content: Like WTNH News 8 on Facebook
