Sports Management Meets Social Networking: TeamSnap Announces Facebook Integration
TeamSnap, a leading web service for managing sports teams and leagues, today announced that users on the TeamSnap service can automatically post team scores to Facebook.

“800 million people use Facebook to connect with their family and friends. Our users had expressed tremendous interest in being able to leverage the power of Facebook from within TeamSnap,” commented Dave DuPont, TeamSnap CEO. “If your team wins, you want to let your friends and family know! You can now use TeamSnap to automatically tell them.”
"Automatically posting results to our team's Facebook fan page is a super easy and fun way to communicate with the team and keep everyone engaged," said Jared Bronson, Team Commander of the Bad Karma Paintball Team.
