The Virtual World

f_logo.png FACEBOOK: Hashtags aren't just for Twitter anymore.  The searchable keywords that link similar posts are now showing up on Facebook.  Anyone who searches for a hashtag, such as "#USIndoor," on Facebook will be able to find public posts using the same hashtag.  Hashtags were created for Twitter and later adopted for services like Instagram.
f_logo.png SECURITY: Twitter and LinkedIn recently joined Google, Microsoft, and Facebook in offering account security called two-factor authentication.  After entering your username and password, the site sends a security code to your cell phone to confirm that you really are who you say you are.  The enhancement comes after several prominent accounts, including the Associated Press, were hacked and posted bogus messages.
f_logo.png USINDOOR.COM: Close to 20% of all page views on our website in June were on Facility Directories--an increase of nearly 150% compared to last year!  All the more reason to ensure your customized microsite (included with membership) is up to date ..., and don't forget to add your logo or a photo (200x150 px). Send all updates to pr@usindoor.com.

FACILITY OPERATORS CONFERENCE & TRADESHOW: We had a fantastic time reconnecting with old friends and meeting new people in Las Vegas!  Among the bus tour, learning sessions, trade show, and social events, the Conference was a huge success.  View photo albums and videos on USIndoor.com and Facebook.com/USIndoor.

If you don't know what people are saying about you on social media channels, email michael@usindoor.com with your facility name.  We'll send you your digital scores.

Take this Month's Survey!

  • Seasonality: Almost all respondents said their facility is used most in winter.  A few said spring, and others said it is the same year 'round.  No one said their facility was used most in the summer or fall.
  • Most Popular Besides Soccer: Lacrosse led the way in 33% of facilities, followed by flag football, baseball, and volleyball.
  • Measures of Performance: Different facilities use different ways to evaluate performance.  Year-to-year financial change is used by almost three-quarters of facilities, followed by net income and the number of teams.
  • Year-To-Year Comparison: Facility usage is up compared to a year ago - 40% up a little and 17% up a lot.  33% said usage was about the same, and 10% said it was down a little.  Thankfully, no one said it was down considerably - we hope everyone continues to enjoy success!
