Social media is a way for our sporting heroes to connect directly to their fans, but it also gives us a warts and all glimpse into a world usually only seen by insiders (Jimmy Spithill motivational Instagram, anyone?). How has it changed the way top sportspeople and teams prepare and compete? Is no-tweeting-before-the game the new no-sex-the-night-before? And do we really want to know what our athletes are eating (and drinking) at 3 in the morning?
Join us as some of New Zealand’s top sporting journalists, social media managers and very special guests get their game face(books) on for the last formal #smcakl event of the year, Sports and Social Media.
Richard Irvine - Blackcaps and New Zealand Cricket Social Media Manager
