Twitter will be the social media outlet in which will be most used by my blog. I would post onto twitter constantly throughout the day updating on issues and events happening relating to sports. Twitter will also help me gain readerships as I would re-tweet from popular sources; giving them credibility for their stories.

Facebook will be the social media outlet used mainly for promotion. With Facebook it will enable me to reach out readers in which will eventually become fans of the Facebook page. The number of people using the site is growing so therefore it is expected to help grow the readership of the blog. Posts will be made on Facebook daily just for the art of promotion.

YouTube/ SoundCloud
These will be the two social media outlets in which will be incorporated with the blog. YouTube with the purpose of integrating video and linking other videos, and SoundCloud with the intention of audio and providing weekly podcasts in which can have a weekly out take on sports and ethics.
