On the page, every time someone that you're following posts something, it will be on that page, in order of time it was posted. If you follow enough people, or certain people, you'll do a lot of scrolling, because you'll be shocked at how much people post (especially hot chics who can't help but post 30 times a day; with cleavage shots & bikini pics ). From there the basics are the "@" symbol is followed by the person's user name (UFC's twitter is @ufc as an example), and "#" means a specific topic (could be something as stupid as #dranktoomuchshittonight). So if you wanted to contact someone, you'd post something like "@danawhite Why are you so bald?", similar to simply posting a message on Dana White's Facebook page (if he has one). Or with the hash tag, it'd be something like "I feel like shit this morning #neverdrinkingagain".

    As for Tumblr, it's basically a blog with an image for each post. Also, in the basic sense, it is just a blog site, that's free to use, and houses millions of blogs on one site.


    Wonder who's going to be the first fighter in the UFC to do this. I'd have to be a serious fan favorite, or everyone would be pissed and call it disrespect for their opponent. It'd be freaking awesome.
    Thanks for the write up; that was helpful

    Facebook is more diverse than Twitter. I agree with you there. But Twitter is better to promote things because it's just in briefe little 140 character headlines. Keeps it short and gets the point across. As far as showing the immaturity of fighters, they say any press is good press.

    I'm ready for both Twitter and Facebook to die, and for some new social media upstart to take over. I'm quite bored with these social media networks at the moment.

    Twitter is pretty straight forward. I figured it out on my own just a few months ago. It's sort of like Facebook only its just status updates. Basically, follow people who you think have something interesting to say, and say whatever you want. You can respond to other people's tweets too. I had a little chit chat with Pat Barry a little while back. That was pretty cool haha.
