Social Media Hubs: ‘Canes & Lightning

The Carolina Hurricanes have put all their social media in one place

The Carolina Hurricanes today launched “Social Media Central”, which is a one-stop shop for everything Facebook, Twitter, and blog related.

It’s an awesome way for fans to find all verifiable pages and sources for social/real time media.The Tampa Bay Lightning have a similar page, though not quite as robust that shows real time feeds for all of their player & organizational related “official” Twitter feeds.

Considering the amount of fake accounts – both Facebook and Twitter — this is a great idea. It’s teams realizing the power of the medium, instead of just “hey, we have a Twitter account…let’s Tweet shots on goal that period”.

I’d expect many NHL teams to follow suit on this one.  Easy idea that’s a winner all the way.
