FreeCast.com Facebook App Sees Huge Response from 2012 Mens Basketball Tournament Viewers
It’s been an exciting few weeks as we’ve watched the 68 teams in the 2012 NCAA Tournament get whittled down to the Sweet Sixteen, and an innovative Facebook app developed by FreeCast.com (“Your Personal Channel Guide”) has helped to guide thousands of fans to live online coverage of every game provided by CBS Sports and Turner Sports.
In addition to serving as the ultimate guide to online TV for Facebook users, the FreeCast app has provided countless web-surfers a convenient way to find and watch major events such as the Super Bowl and the GRAMMYs via Facebook, but the massive viewership for the NCAA Tournament has helped the app see its most rapid growth in users ever.
After some impressive wins by Syracuse, Louisville, Florida and Ohio State on Thursday, the anticipation of the remaining rounds will be sure to attract even more viewers, and FreeCast expects that a large portion of those viewers will be using their app to keep up with excitement on Facebook.
“We’ve had a tremendous response from Facebook users in the past few weeks, and we’re delighted that our app has helped so many college basketball fans find and watch every game of the tournament online,” says FreeCast CEO William Mobley. “As we enter the final rounds, we expect even more tournament fans to see the value of our app as the go-to guide for keeping up with all the action.”
