FaceBook may be the social media giant, but Google Plus is certainly making grounds. Nearly every NFL franchise has an official account with six teams going above the rest in their connectivity to their fans.
These teams highlighted below are the ones that go above and beyond, and have over 100,000 +1s. With the median number at just under 3,200 +1s, the staggering numbers you’re about to read are just that – staggering.
Here are the 6 NFL Teams To Follow On Google+
The Steelers are one of the most active fan pages on Google+. They can post up to 10 times on a given day, and some times more often. Fans can get a glimpse of current players and former gridiron greats.
The Patriots take multimedia to another level with audio bites and video archives of players and coaches. Fans can find everything they want and more on their official page.
The Redskins dip a bit behind the prowess of the Steelers and Patriots, with around half the number of +1s. Washington is all over social media, with big followings on Twitter and FaceBook as well.
The Cowboys, also, take a big dip behind the Redskins. They post quite less frequently, as their last post was in July. But when they do post, it’s worth it. Not many teams post memes.
The Colts are even less active than the Cowboys, but they give out high-quality content when they do post. Included are Google Hangouts (similar to skype) where fans can interact.
And last, but not least, we have the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have fun with their account by mentioning the team version of Angry Birds. They keep their information up-to-date and relevant.
