It amazes me how many people actually use Facebook. Practically everyone that I know, and even some that I don't, have sent me a friend request at some point over the last decade.
The social media giant is constantly adding new features to reel in even more users. If you're a sports fan, you're going to absolutely LOVE what the site is doing now!
Facebook to live-stream college football
Facebook is teaming with the Stadium sports network to live-stream a handful of college football games this season. A total of 15 games will be available exclusively online to Facebook users including six Mountain West conference and nine Conference USA games.
The games broadcast on Facebook will include a number of interactive features that are not available to viewers on standard televisions. There will be a social team along with other correspondents engaging with viewers in conversations.
Also, there will be curated live chats involving football personalities that viewers can participate in. This could be a groundbreaking way to experience live sports.
