For the 2012 Olympics, NBC Olympics is collaborating with Facebook to give the games coverage a social networking spin. It seems like a natural step: in recent years, it's become more and more popular for TV viewers to share and discuss programs online — whether they're talking about a major sporting event, the Oscars, or an episode of The Bachelorette.
On the NBC Olympics Facebook page, fans will find up-to-date information, polls, photo galleries, and relevant trivia. Those who "like" the page will have access to exclusive content, and the results of a daily Facebook poll will air on NBC. The coverage will also include the launch of Talk Meter, a new Facebook tool that will show NBC viewers which stories, athletes, and events people are talking about online.
