With Super Bowl 2015 mere days away, Facebook decided it was time to uncloak a dedicated hub just for the big game.
"This year, we’re introducing a new Super Bowl experience to give fans one place to connect in real time as they watch the Seattle Seahawks defend their title against the New England Patriots," announced Facebook via a blog post published to its Newsroom center.
You can use the hub by going to the following webpage: facebook.com/superbowl. It'll let you view a variety of Super Bowl-related moments and information, including: posts from people in your network, real-time reactions from people around the world with a feature called Live Feed, photos and videos from people at the game, and posts from the NFL, teams, and players with a feature called In the Story.
Another way you to find the hub is by tapping on any post with the “watching Super Bowl XLIX” tag or Super Bowl-related hashtags. Once there, you'll also notice live scores, the current play time, and play-by-play updates. The idea is that you'll never have to navigate away from Facebook while watching the game, or at least that's what Facebook seems to be hoping.
Super Bowl 2015, also called Super Bowl XLIX, is scheduled to air 1 February. The game will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
