The Virtual World

Facebook is testing a new way to search its website, called “Graph Search.” Instead of searching for a person, one can search, for example, for “friends of Chris who live nearby and play soccer” to find relevant results--No estimate yet on how long until the service fully rolls out. Find us at USIndoor Sports and USIndoor Soccer.

Twitter-bird13-1.png The word, “hashtag,” was named "Word of the Year" for 2012 by the American Dialect Society. The ADS said hashtags “have created instant social trends, spreading bite-sized viral messages on topics ranging from politics to pop culture.” USIndoor is on Twitter at https://twitter.com/USIndoor.
google13.png Google+ launched to much fanfare, but usage of the service is very low. Graph Search, mentioned above, may help Facebook retain customers and keep them away from Google.

USIndoor Forums are making a comeback on LinkedIn! USIndoorOne (for facility members), The Crease (for indoor soccer referees), and its forum for "Startups and Expanding Facilities" are great places to connect with fellow facility operators, referees, corporate members, USIndoor and other industry leaders. You can ask questions, give advice, and disucss important topics. Follow the foregoing links, check your email, or use our website to get connected.

If you don’t know what people are saying about you on the social media channels, email michael@usindoor.com with your facility name. We’ll send you your digital scores. Also, if you’d like USIndoor to retweet your information, send your twitter name and hashtags.
