Social Media Idea for Tournaments

Anything that's on topic but doesn't fit elsewhere, including related events that might be of interest to quizbowl players (KMO, Science Bowl, etc).

Social Media Idea for Tournaments

Post by 1992 in spaceflight » Tue May 09, 2017 4:14 pm

Hello quizbowl,

I want to share an idea I had a few weeks ago. I was watching a Facebook Live video made by a friend of mine, and an idea came to me-we could quite easily use Facebook Live to broadcast the opening meeting and/or the awards ceremony of a tournament on Facebook Live. I know there are some challenges with getting things filmed (getting permission from everybody, etc.), but I think this could be a fantastic game-changer. Can you imagine how awesome it would be to share a video of the awards ceremony at HSNCT or NSC?

I'd love to see some discussion about this. Hope to see if it's feasible to get this implemented.

There's a difference between YouTube videos (which is where the ACF Nationals videos are, from 2012 on) and Facebook Live. Think about it. How many people have a Facebook page? And how many quizbowl organizations have a facebook page? The possibilities for Facebook Live is exciting to think about.

P.S. I do appreciate the ACF Nationals videos, Jerry!

I think Michael might have been referring to how my brother Kevin Wang broadcast a Facebook Live stream of the finals and awards ceremony at this year's ACF Nationals. It wasn't an official ACF thing, though.

Yeah my bad. I was aware that Kevin's stream wasn't official but I was also under the impression someone else had been streaming it officially.
