Last week I was selected to be one of the Indianapolis Super Bowl 46 Social Media Crew to help promote Indianapolis and the Super Bowl through Social Media. This is something that a guy, who does not follow football, couldn’t believe. I am honored to be able to do this. The decision on who was selected was made by both Klout.com and the Super Bowl Social Media Committee. Not sure how I got selected, but that’s ok with me. I talked to one person who told me “I walked into the room and looked around and saw the Who’s Who of Indianapolis social media and thought ‘What the heck am I doing here?'” I told him that I thought the exact same thing. When asked what I wanted to learn about this my only answer was to learn more about football. Tonight, I learned the the two teams who play in the Super Bowl will be decided this weekend.
So over the next two weeks, I get to help showcase the Super Bowl! Yay!
Some cool facts we learned last night at the #Social46 kickoff held at the Super Bowl Committees headquarters.
-This is going to be a connected Super Bowl. – Lots of social media.
-“Get Connected” is going to be one of the main campaigns.
-Butler Blue 2, The Butler mascot snores louder than I do.
-This is going to be a diverse group for the Super Bowl. They want to include everybody.
