Several brands on Facebook are getting into the act of crowdsourcing. Count Sports Illustrated in that group. For the second year in a row, the magazine is turning to its Facebook fans to choose its year-end awards.
The 2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament tipped off with two games last night, but there’s still plenty of time to fill those brackets out; the Atlantic Coast Conference, USA Today, Sports Illustrated, and Sporting News are all providing social applications to do that via Facebook.
A new app powered by Buddy Media is for the Sports Illustrated Golf Group. It’s called SI GOLFNation. The application is a way for golfers to track their own progress and connect with each other. SI GOLFNation is also designed as a way for the Sports Illustrated Gold Group, which includes Golf Magazine, GOLF.com and SI Golf Plus, to connect with golfers as well.
