The number of sports fans on Facebook and Twitter has more than doubled in the past decade, but it’s also growing in number, with more than one in four adults having at least one social network profile.
This week, the International Sports Marketing Association (ISMA) released its latest research on the popularity of sports on social media.
In the past year, social networks have become so ubiquitous that they’ve become more popular than any other form of media in the world, with just under one in five adults now using a social network.
But the ISMA says the trend is largely driven by the growth of online sports.
“With sports becoming a part of our daily lives, social media is becoming the default platform for most of us,” says Sarah Eichhorn, chief executive of ISMA, which provides the global sports marketing and communications industry research group.
“For example, a sport can only be accessed on one social media platform at a time. “
So, for example, if you’re watching a football match on your mobile phone, the same app can only provide you with a view of that match. “

“There are also many sports that don’t have a specific audience that people who aren’t active users can connect with, or may only be interested in those who are active users.” “

As well as the big sports stars and celebrities, many online sports platforms also cater to younger people.
“It’s no secret that the most popular sports in the US are the NFL, the NBA and MLB,” says Chris Hagerty, director of sports analytics at social media analytics firm Mixpanel.
“The rise of social media has also led to an increase in the number and popularity of younger users on social platforms. “
“So in many ways, we’re seeing a much younger demographic using these platforms.” “
While social media giants like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have more than tripled in number of daily active users (DAUs), social networks like Snapchat, Snapchat Plus and Snapchat Gold have also grown rapidly. “

“These are not just sports-focused social networks, but there’s an increasing trend of people using these as their primary social network, and even as their main news source,” says Hagery.
In the latest survey, a total of 2.4 million adults aged 18-34 responded. “
At the moment, Snapchat is the number one place to share photos of yourself with your family, but I think we’re moving towards a generation where it’s more likely to be shared via a photo or video.”
In the latest survey, a total of 2.4 million adults aged 18-34 responded.
The majority of people said they were active on Facebook (51 per cent) and Instagram (41 per cent).
They were more likely than any of the other social media platforms to have been to a sporting event (43 per cent), and to have watched a live football match (37 per cent.)
But they were less likely to have had a profile in one of these platforms (27 per cent); they were also less likely than anyone else to be active on Snapchat (25 per cent; compared to 49 per cent of the general population).
More than half of those surveyed said they use a social media app on a regular basis, but they’re not necessarily the most active users.
Only 6 per cent use Twitter on a daily basis, while just over half use Snapchat.
The survey also showed that almost half of people aged 18 to 34 said they had a social networking account, and the most frequently used app for that demographic was Instagram (49 per cent, up from 42 per cent in the previous survey).
But this number was also down from the past two years, when just over 40 per cent said they’d used an Instagram account.
While Instagram is the most widely used social media for young people, social platforms such as Facebook and Snapchat have also seen a surge in popularity.
And while this is largely due to the popularity and growth of Instagram, it’s not just Instagram users who are taking advantage of this trend.
“Snapchat has become the most dominant social media network in terms to the number users and their active engagement, so it’s probably not surprising that more people are using this service,” says Eichorn.
While there are certainly advantages to using Facebook
