One of the most polarizing figures in recent sports history captured the headlines yesterday, as QB Tim Tebow was traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets. Even if you don’t follow sports closely, thanks to social media… you’ve probably heard of him & the Internet phenomenon, known as “Tebowing”.
While his success on the field is well documented, guiding the Denver Broncos to the playoffs, his social media presence has also become second to none. #Tebowmania has spread like wildfire across Twitter and Tim himself showed an in-depth appreciation for Facebook.
Just last month, Tebow visited the Facebook HQ and posted this picture directly to his timeline to show his 1.7 million subscribers just how passionate he was for Zuck & Co. After the trade went down yesterday Tebow again illustrated how Facebook savvy he was by updating his hometown to “New York, NY” & his occupation to “QB at New York Jets”.
While many thought “Tebowmania” couldn’t possibly get any bigger across the various social networks, that was prior to Tim being traded to the media center of the world. While no one knows what this upcoming season will hold for Tim and his teammates, we look forward to following along with him on Facebook, for what’s sure to be one crazy ride.
