Professional athletes have the ability to utilize the various social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to reach and engage a much larger audience who are able to support their efforts by liking, sharing, retweeting, or posting their own content surrounding a trending topic.
In addition to building relationships with fans, social media can help sports organizations boost sales while reducing marketing costs. By entering into two-way conversations with fans, teams can build their brands on an individual level in a way that no other medium can match.
Brand Managers Going Forward Any athlete COULD manage their own profile, but the fact of the matter is that it’s a lot of time and a lot of work. There comes a point in any professional athlete’s career in which they have to trust someone to help them manage their brand and persona.
During and after their college sports career, athletes can benefit from using social media to self-market, build a personal brand, and promote themselves. Social media can be a key networking tool for helping athletes get recruited.
If social media is making it possible for fans to be more engaged, it’s also making it possible for sporting professionals to be more accountable for their public comments and the way in which they, in return, engage with their fans and wider community.
“Social media marketing is the process of creating tailored content for each social media platform to drive engagement and promote your business.” Social media marketing is all about connecting with your audience or customers and helping them understand your brand better.
Social media can provide athletes with false information, distract them from things they need to get done and act as a substitute for having real hobbies.

Social media may promote negative experiences such as:
- Inadequacy about your life or appearance.
- Fear of missing out (FOMO).
- Depression and anxiety.
- A fear of missing out (FOMO) can keep you returning to social media over and over again.
