Another day, another athlete social media faux pas. At least, that’s how it seems in this fast-paced digital age. Having covered social media, I’ve also noticed that most sports personalities are making similar missteps. So I decided to compile a list of social media do’s and don’ts for athletes that was both tongue-in-cheek and useful.
The piece was really well-received. I think it’s the balance of dry humor, real word examples and legitimate pointers that made it appeal to my audience.
Following the column, I was asked to appear on the Bryan Hayes Show on TSN 1050 (Toronto’s ESPN affiliate) to discuss the piece as well as my general thoughts on sports and social media.
