San Francisco Giants Create Sports Social Media Cafe

sports social mediaThe San Francisco Giants have put themselves at the forefront of the sports social media scene with the recent addition of a sports social media cafe inside AT&T Park.

The Giants made the addition less than two weeks ago behind the centerfield wall in Peet’s Coffee. The cafe is one of a kind in MLB and should attract a ton of happy ballpark dwellers.

Giants fans can view their own social media content from Twitter and Instagram on six, 55-inch screens, all while enjoying some coffee, recharging a smartphone, accessing a Wi-Fi connection all while watching the Giants play ball.

The café also includes a giant sized tweet-deck where Giants’ employees can create tweets and display them within the café for others to read.

“We started to work with a company that allowed us to post tweets on the scoreboard. I just thought that there was something cool about that,” said social media director Bryan Srabian.

“In my world, I walk around and I notice these things. I walked around Starbucks in New York City, and I noticed this giant video wall in Times Square. It had all of these people’s tweets from around the world that were drinking Starbucks. I just think there is something interesting about that.”

The San Francisco area is definetely a social media friendly community. Levi’s Stadium – the eventual new home of the 49ers – will also be a huge social media hub for fans.

The cyber cafe should be a way to draw extra fans to ball games as ticket sales are down around MLB this season and sponsorship deals inside the cafe should also provide the franchise with some extra revenue as the idea is one of a kind for the time being.

    Crowdfunding may soon cross its nascent industry chasm, as Brazzle Berry (www.CrowdFundBerry.Com) is crowdsurfing in the New Year on a MAVERICKS size crowdfunding campaign, and a creative Christmas wish-list innovatively designed to ride the A&E Network ‘Project Startup’ wave.
    While traditionally only non-profits and other social ventures have thrived on crowdfunding sites like RocketHub.com, the lingering ramifications of the credit crises on start-up small- business loan opportunities have recently converged with social networking and crowdsourcing technology to make Rewards Crowdfunding a lucrative alternative for lonesome bootstrapped firms like Brazzle Berry. The Half Moon Bay, Ca based QSR start-up is seeking $10,000 in working capital financing by creatively delivering social value to peer and consumer networks through unique rewards and experience s, as opposed to further bootstrapping growth through high-interest credit card debt.
    Brazzle Berry’s campaign creates an industry paradigm shift by validating the economic viability of “Business- Crowdfunding” in a new realm of Customer-Financing. Foremost, it foreshadows crowdsourcing’s quintessential future of connecting people at local levels to create innovative brands benefiting communities, above all else.
