Football in a Social, Local, Mobile World [Infographic]

Being an American, I tend to have a limited view of European football, or “soccer”. Nevertheless, the rest of the world has a much boarder view of football, as “The World Game,” and it reflects in mobile and social media usage.

Football is the biggest sport on the planet, and it brings more people together than any other sport. The current infographic is the creation of Football Meister, and is appropriately titled “Football in a SoLoMo World.”

As you scroll down the infographic take a look at how Facebook dominates check-ins over foursquare. Another interesting statistic is how quickly and how many Lionel Messi acquired Facebook fans in one hour.

When the next World Cup happens in Brazil, which will be in 2014, mobile Internet will be bigger than desktop Internet.
