Supporting Teammates Through Social Media
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.
