Research on the NBA is vast. Research on social media is growing. But research on the intersection of the NBA and social media is very limited. I conducted research on how NBA fans use social media (specifically Facebook and Twitter) to support their favorite NBA teams, and results will be discussed. This presentation will also show how social media is changing the way NBA fans connect and keep up with their favorite teams, how teams are reaching out to fans, and how teams can improve their social media presence. Examples of how teams are using social media to connect with fans, as well as suggestions on how teams of all sports and sports leagues can make better use of social media to engage their fans will also be discussed.
