Networking Olympians

Hey everyone! With the Olympic Games well under way, people all over the world are cheering for their countries. In the current day and age, the fastest way to get any information out about the details of each event is through social networking. It is the perfect way to keep track of what is happening and celebrate with your friends after. When Michael Phelps made his 19th gold medal win, he became the record holder for the most all time gold medals. But that was not the only record broken: there was an all time record of 37000 tweets right when he won the race. Talk about keeping your friends up to date!
On Facebook, the talk meter for Phelps reached 5.6 million fans, making him the most talked about athlete worldwide. Gavy Douglas's performance had 29000 tweets, coming close to the record breaking Phelps amount. Even President Obama tweeted Phelps after his 19th medal win saying he made his country proud.

How do you keep up to date with the Olympics? How do you celebrate your team's victories? Let me know in the comments!
