Your Social Media Guide To The Super Bowl [Infographic]

By Sheldon Levine - Thursday, January 31st, 2013 at 7:30 am  

This weekend marks the most watched event on television every year; the Super Bowl. Millions of people will be tuning in to watch the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers. Millions more will tune in to watch Beyonce at the half time show and, of course, the commercials.

With the rise of the second screen though, the TV isn’t going to be the only thing people have their eyes on. Over the past few years the Super Bowl has¬†continuously¬†gone more social. In 2011 there was over 3 million Super Bowl related tweets and then almost 14 million in 2012. On Sunday, Super Bowl 47 promises to see the most social interaction yet. That’s why we’ve created The Social Media Guide To Super Bowl XLVII.

Below you can find an infographic that highlights the top Twitter fans for both the 49ers and the Ravens, top players to follow on Twitter as well as top football reporters and bloggers. It also shows that the Ravens had 3 million more social media mentions than the 49ers over the season. However, San Francisco has a higher favourable rating than Baltimore.

Take a look at the infographic below and let us know in the comments what or who you’re going to be following through social media during the big game.
