ATLANTA – Over the last four months, the Georgia Tech Athletic Association has seen a steady growth of popularity on both its Twitter and Facebook pages. Since March, the GTAthletics Facebook page has doubled in fans, while its Twitter page has grown almost five-times over in followers.
Georgia Tech fans, who have accessed the two social media web sites, have been provided behind-the-scenes information, links to Georgia Tech specific stories and were offered opportunities to win tickets to Georgia Tech sporting events.
