Social Media Mare Monitering Project

Tuesday March 27th, Xbox posted on Facebook about its Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13  challenge .For the chance to win a custom Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 2013 250 GB Kinect console bundle, dress up like a golf pro and go to a Best Buy “Play It First” event. Take a picture of yourself playing the in-store demo and upload via Twitter with the... hashtag “#TW13BETTERWKINECT” or email to TW13PGATOUR Also, don’t forget to play this week’s Challenge Hole for a chance to win the Grand Prize trip to THE PLAYERS Championship in Ponte Vedra, Florida!This has been a big thing for fans of the game, and if not only brings Xbox  money , but it gives Best Buy business as well. I find it interesting how they posted it on Facebook, but they say post the pictures on Twitter. Xbox is trying to incorporate both social media cites. It is a smart marketing strategy. This game is now available in stores. So let the competition begin!

For those of us football fans who love the Madden NFL football video game franchise , the time for us fans to vote for the Madden NFL 13 cover player has come. Every year a new NFL player is voted on to the cover of the new Madden game released in August. For the past 2 years however, EA  sports has teamed up with Facebook, and Xbox to allow us fans to vote on who we believe should be the next Madden cover athlete. This year's voting started last week. It is almost like a bracket style where players are matched up against one another and we vote. This bracket is run by and Xbox posts links for it every week on Facebook, and Twitter. Players around tge league are even campaigning to be on the cover. Patriots Tight end Rob Gronkowski posted a video on You Tube asking his fans to please vote for him for the cover. It is a funny video. 

 Xbox has been advertising its new game Dance Central 2 for the Kinnect . It was the best selling Kinnect game last year, but it uis getting mixed reviews. On facebook people are talking about the game, commenting on the link Xbox posted. Some people are excited about it, and others are just annoyed that it is coming out.
