OXFORD, Miss. -- Ole Miss Athletics announces the launch of Ole Miss Social Rebels, where fans can show social media support for Ole Miss Athletics and win prizes.
Developed in partnership with Lodestone Sports, the leader in social media programs for college sports, fans receive points for participating in social media activities such as `liking' Facebook posts, commenting, sharing, tweeting hashtags, re-tweeting, checking in or posting photos on Foursquare or Facebook and taking in-game polls with Social Stadium Twitter promotions.
Fans can also gain points by taking polls, signing up for promotions, printing coupons and more on Ole Miss Team Facebook Pages.
The program tracks overall point leaders, athletics leaders and individual team leaders from football to golf. Social Rebels creates a unique experience and promotion for each Ole Miss team, drives awareness and rewards super fans of each Rebel team.
All users need to do is sign up at www.olemisssocialrebels.com , connect to Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare and start engaging on Ole Miss social media accounts and attending games.
Grand prizes include iPads, running through the tunnel with the Rebel football team and lunch with Athletics Director Ross Bjork. Fans in the top leader board for each sport will be entered into a chance to win one of the three prizes.
The first promotion will end on July 31, 2012 and other promotions will be coming afterwards. In the near future, fans can also redeem their points for Ole Miss merchandise or coupons in the Points Store.
On the horizon, Ole Miss Social Rebels will be adding new social platforms, more ways to earn points and mobile integration.
