Top Five Social Media Rules Athletes Need To Know

By Angela Davis On December - 6 - 2010
Athletes today are more like celebrities. Gone are the days when they just stayed on the field, court, track, etc., played the game and then went home.

Now we have social media, and not only do we know what they’re doing at all times, but we know what they think, how they feel and what they’ll do next–and that’s not always a good thing.
