Jed Mettee is the Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Major League Soccer's San Jose Earthquakes. Here, Mettee discusses the power of social media outlets to make a difference. Certainly on a large scale, causes like the “Ice Bucket Challenge” are positively moved through social media platforms, but it can also happen on a smaller scale. Teammates can use positive messaging through social media channels to show support. For example, if a teammate is down or made a mistake in a game, there are ways to reinforce that they’re on an important part of a team on this public forum.
