The Olympics will stay on the headlines through the summer of 2012 as the biggest sporting event in the world; Britain, the host Nation will have a big PR privilege during the event. Social media will play a big role during the games and will get more people involved and updated than previous Games.
Facebook and Twitter are ‘likely’ to be the biggest socials for this event because of their community of users and integration on diverse platforms. This is the projection, but a new social network from Britain can use this opportunity to grow to hundreds of millions of users around the world during and after the event.
A sharply different social network from existing ones in entrée, relations, use and application from Britain before the Olympics will attract millions of users globally. By integrating to provide best feeds for the Games, the social will dwarf others and stay users for its uniqueness after the Games.
With one encompassing social from a British Tech company, others can be designed for video-sharing and weblogs differing in service from popular ones with features that hand more power and service to users. Web managers of the video sharing site can upload scenes of games and off-games activities to it to join user uploads and make it the number one source for videos of the Olympics.
An example of what Britain may launch as the encompassing social before the Olympics Games can be accessed here or downloaded at 4shared. It presents a no-registration, new-experience platform for users; this or similar service will truck Britain forward in social media provision globally.
