The Social America's Cup Live - #AmericasCup & The America's Cup

America's Cup 2013 Live Social Conversations
The sport of sailing is typically a tough spectator sport, as the action happens out on the water - in most cases beyond even the best binocular's reach - but that is not the story of what is happening on shore. With @AmericasCup having 42.7k followers , and 16k tweets for @americascup to date, total social reach* on FB, Twitter and Instagram alone is nearing the 1 Billion mark, and there are weeks more sailing to go. While the organizers are doing a great job keeping fans posted with live racing and event coverage vis Titter, watching what the fans and participants have to say gives the event more depth, dimension and a sense of community, which is why we would like to share it.
When major events happen somewhere in the world, they happen globally on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. Social media brings people closer to the things they care about and to like minded fellow fans. America’s Cup fans get updates right from the racecourse @EmirateszTeamNZ.
Just rounded the third mark, as expected we are in front. The guys look to be having a very nice sail around the bay. http://t.co/BWzIEo3brB
