TTU Sports Creates Facebook Fan Page

In an effort to build support by way of social media, the Tennessee Tech Sports Information and Marketing Departments have created a TTUsports Fan Page on Facebook. Officials say the page provides up to date links to breaking news, feature stories, game previews and recaps for all Tech athletic programs. There will also be links to Tech fight songs and YouTube videos. Administrators who will able to update the Golden Eagle Twitter account will include personnel in the sports information and marketing departments. But individual team managers, coaches and players will also have the ability to post, making the page more than just a venue for sports information. Tech officials say they hope to create a more personal form of communication between athletes and fans by enabling this type of posting and blogging. To become a fan, Facebook users can log into their accounts and type TTU Sports in the search field at the top of the page.
