Sport Street Aggregates All Player And Team Social Into New App For Sports Fans
April 17, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsNew York, New York (April 17, 2013) – Sport Street Inc, a leader in social networking, has launched a new app for iPhone and Android with Team and Player pages for NCAA and Pro Teams across major sports leagues around the world. Through this app, fans get instant access to the Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and other social feeds directly from the teams and players. The app is a one-stop destination for all sports social media.
In addition to the social feeds, Team and Player Pages also include roster, stats, schedules, news, scores and live in-game chat, and more so fans from all around the world can experience everything they love about sports on one social platform.
"By aggregating the social feeds (Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and other) directly from teams and players, we're providing an easy and convenient way for fans to get closer to the action than ever before," says Daniel Smith, CEO of Sport Street. "Fans no longer have to search for athletes and teams they want to follow on other social networks. It's all right here on Sport Street."
Fans aren't the only winners. The app allows beat writers and reporters with Twitter followers to instantly increase their visibility and reach many more fans. With hyperlinks inside their tweets, users will be one click away from the full stories and columns of reporters. Having the reporters commentary inside the in-game chats, fans now have the opportunity to comment on, and experience games live from the front row and in the locker room alongside the most knowledgeable sports writers in the country.
Players also win big with Sport Street. With the simplicity of having all social feeds in one place on Player Pages, fans can now easily follow more players and more content, thus increasing the visibility of all athletes regardless of their market or star-status. Fans who currently follow a few players on various social networks can broaden their base by following entire teams of players on one platform. And for those without a Twitter, Instagram or YouTube account, they'll now have access to all the social feeds they've been missing in one convenient place.
"All the metrics we are following validate the growing demand for social sports apps," Paul Swangard, Managing Director at Universityof Oregon's Warsaw Sports Marketing Center. "Sport Street provides a great vehicle to deliver that social fan experience, and I expect consumers will embrace this app as awareness builds for this exciting new product."
