Pixlr TT banner

Tuesday Ten is a quick 10-minute chat with leaders and up-and-comers in the world of sports. Last night, John M Martin joined the show.

John is one of the leaders in utilizing Google+ Communities in the sports landscape. With Communities in college basketball, college football, golf and one for the Kentucky fans with his Big Blue Nation Community, John has shown that Google+ can be a space for sports fans to talk sports.

Earlier today, the conversation continued after the show on the Google+ Event page, here. A key point that John raised about Communities with respect to sports is below. The screenshot reflects the number of members in two of the sports Communities John is involved in. In addition, two of the recent Google+ Hangouts the College Basketball Community held had big numbers in terms of viewership.


Like John said, for a ghost town, “that’s a lot of ghosts”.
