London Olympics will dominate social media during next few weeks. Facebook, Twitter, apps and websites will be humming full blast. It will create a data overload nightmare and if you are on a limited data plan on your phone, you will run out soon. As usual during Super Bowl and All-Star Games, social media will play a big role during Olympics too. You may be watching summer Olympics on a TV, but your tablet and iPhone (or similar smartphone) will be busy with comments.
More than 9,500 athletes competing at the games may like to keep in touch with their fans through Facebook, Twitter and other social media. Fans will be participating in action too.
In order to avoid overload of information, find a platform that put together information from many sources at your finger tip. Whether it’s a live app that runs on Wi-Fi or any other, find a way to save data overload and avoid additional charges.
TV viewers will get pre-recorded version of Opening Ceremony and other activities during prime time telecast, say 7:30 pm local time. But your phone and tablet can get the information prior to cable cast and while the games are in progress.
