Social media is the new newspaper clipping

By: Kathy Trainor 

Sometimes moms have a moment where they are playing on social media and a local news station will post and ask you to show you a proud fan moment. I can remember getting the paper when I was a kid and seeing other families in the paper for for similar things. These days, news outlets are turning to social media to promote their fan engagement by sharing pictures and posts from loyal supporters.

Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 7.32.34 PMBeing from the Boston area we all have our fan gear to support our favorite teams. For us, our sport of choice is hockey! We love hockey. The boys have jerseys or shirts from each season.  Recently, I even added the boys to a photo album in the new stations list of fans on their website.

Then it happened!  My boys were chosen to be on the Facebook and Twitter feed of the local station before the start of the Bruins game on December 11th! They even tagged the Bruins in the post.  To me, it was like being on the front page of the sports section in the Boston Globe!

Definitely a proud Mommy moment !
