Olympic Section News Feed

Facebook announced this week that it is going to provide number of ways for its users to support their favorite teams plus track the Olympics news they care about. To do so the networking site has launched a special dedicated section in News Feed. Previously, Twitter also introduced followable Moments and other means of tuning into Olympics news via its network.

The social media site again bringing profile frames that allows to set a custom frame around Profile picture on Facebook. The new Olympics frames are branded with the Rio 2016 logo while also allowing you to show your support for your country or favorite teams. These will arrive by the end of the week.

MSQRD, a recent Facebook acquisition is a photo and video filter app, is rolling out country flag masks which you can overlay on your photos or videos starting today. The app earlier this summer also expanded to support live broadcasting to Facebook. With the app you can show your friends how you look like before and after you done your Olympics mask.

The debut of a personalized section in News Feed is the most interesting addition to the collection of Olympics-related content on Facebook. From August 1st to 5th, Facebook will greet users with an Olympics illustration and message at the top of their News Feed.

If you click through, you’ll be taken to a page that offers “dynamic” mix of Olympics-themed search results and conversations. There you can also explore Events, Live Videos from Rio, and more which are personalized to you.

Inside the Olympics Games News Feed fans can enjoy play-by-play coverage of sports matches, view comments from friends. They can also see expert and analyst’s views and check out other game and play information. The social site has plan send out a similar greeting on August 21st for the Closing Ceremony.

This page is similarly difficult to find, if Facebook doesn’t place it in front of you in some sort of obvious way.
