Keep tabs on your favorite pro athletes and teams

Whether you call it “keeping tabs,” “research,” or “stalking,” there is a platform to help you track your favorite pro athletes’ social media accounts.

PlayerPlug reached out to me today, to let me know about a new platform. Lots of people think their inventions, apps, platforms, ideas are cool, but this one is a game-changer.

How so? PlayerPlug has an easy-to-use interface that lets you follow the social media activity of your favorite professional athletes and teams across a a variety of sports.

I love the pro football. I clicked on the easy to find (if you know the alphabet) NFL tab and, BOOM!, I can select the social media feeds of entire teams or individual athletes. There’s also away to see mentions of your favorite teams and players on Reddit News.

I selected the Patriots. Go Pats! Just kidding. Kidding a lot. Go Steelers! So I selected the good ol’ Black & Gold. (And, this time I’m serious. Don’t be a hater.)

I can either track the Steelers on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Reddit, or I can select individual players, organized in alphabetical order with handy icons showing you where you can find your favorite players.

Interestingly, kicker Josh Scobee isn’t on the roster. I’m not sure if this is an oversight or if the creators of PlayerPlug football are so tapped into the sentiments of Steelers fans that they preemptively removed him from the roster after his dismal performance against the Ravens on Thursday.

DeAngelo Williams is very active on social media, so from PlayerPlug, I can easily see what he is up to on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. There are also convenient links to his Wikipedia entry and his Pro-Football reference profile.

D-Will does a lot of activism and awareness work for cancer. I found this today:


If you hate the NFL, first of all, I’m sorry. It is a great way to stay entertained on Sundays. Second, there are also tabs for the NBA, MLB and NHL. You can also search by individual player to make sure you are up on your favorite pro athletes’ social media activities.
