The +Australian Open is doing some great things with social media:

“We’re concentrating more than ever on engaging socially with our fans,” Daniel Lattimer, who works on the digital team for the event. “We were the first Grand Slam on Twitter, and engagement has been going up there and on Facebook, so it’s important to provide people with that complement to the actual watching of the tennis during the tournament.”

Tournament officials plan to man the Twitter feed 24 hours a day all the way through final matches on Jan. 29 for the event’s global audience. There will be a fan leader board that ranks players based on buzz and there will even be a team of selected “Fan-bassadors” who prove themselves by being particular active online and sharing a wealth of tennis knowledge.

They're doing great things on Google+ too, so add them to your circles if you're a Tennis fan.

Reps. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and Joe Barton (R-Texas) recently accused Facebook of evading questions about user tracking.

“Facebook seems to be saying one thing and doing another,” Barton said. “In the company’s response, it talks a lot about how they don’t currently ‘track’ users online, but they just asked for a patent that would allow them to do just that. Why ask for something you don’t ever plan on using?"

“I don’t believe that Facebook adequately addresses that question. If they get a patent that among other things explicitly mentions tracking the information about the activities of users of a social networking system while on another domain — how will it be used?"

A look back at the biggest sports and social media moments of 2011.

From +ESPN:
With the social space evolving almost as quickly as you can type 140 characters, we've only begun to scratch the surface of the relationship between sports and social media. Expect even more engagement and innovation with athletes and the Web in 2012.

Some interesting Twitter stats to chew on:

Twitter users include:
• 75% of the NBA's players
• 50% of the NFL's players
• 82% of the U.S. House
• 85% of the U.S. Senate
• 87% of the Billboard Top 100 Musicians
• 93% of the top Food Network chefs

Also, Twitter has over 100 million active users worldwide (out of a total of over 200 million) but 40% of them have not tweeted in the past 30 days and lean towards simply signing in to read/listen.

From +CNET:
When Facebook unveiled Open Graph at the f8 developer conference this year, it was clear that the goal of the initiative is to quantify just about everything you do on Facebook. All your shares are automatic, and both Facebook and publishers can track them, use them to develop personalization tools, and apply some kind of metric to them.

Frictionless sharing via Open Graph recasts Facebook's basic purpose, making it more about recommending and archiving than about sharing and communicating. That's a potentially dangerous strategy--not just because oversharing diminishes our interest in sharing but also because it's tweaking the formula that made the site a winner in the first place.

And that is basically why I don't use Facebook for personal use anymore.
