Tell the Finns to use #Floorball instead of #Salibandy - since they know what they do


First
This is how Floorball grew on Twitter last month

This is interesting since Google analytics often show this picture


In other words a trend going down, but we here think that the Google trend just shows how traffic migrates from regular search engines to social media. And THIS IS WHY national Federations and Floorball Clubs must be active on social media - or we miss the audience.

Here is another very interesting image


First we of course have the terrible name problem for our sport yet again and we can not understand why not IFF address this problem with force - we can only nag about this serious digital problem ourselves. Then this image (N.B. this image include the use of hashtags on Twitter - other results come up differently if not using the hashtag) shows very clearly that Finland - or at least the people calling our sport #salibandy rocks the twitter world. They are in volume like almost 3 times as good as tweeting as the people tweeting either #floorball or #innebandy (all other names for the sport has been excluded in this graph).

The best way for this volume to grow would be the use of the #floorball only - and the fastest way to do this is to tell the Finns to change first - since well the Swedes seems lost in space and not to know twitter or how to put in hashtags anyway..

Or how do you dear reader read this statistics? Wanna explore more in this field - try Topsy a cool social media search engine.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
