  • Press Release: Millennials Key Focus of Around the Rings’ Social Networking


    11/14/08

     ATLANTA – Around the Rings is reaching out to Generation Y through a new MySpace page aimed at opening up the Olympic Movement for the next group of fans.

    Launching Friday, Nov. 14, the new site will offer unique content that is an extension of the company’s subscription-based publication through the blog feature.

    "We are committed to bringing news about the Olympic Movement to as many people as possible through new portals such as our MySpace page,” says Editor Ed Hula. “The way people get information is changing from paper, books and other traditional media, which we cannot ignore.

    "Indeed, in late 1996, Around the Rings was one of the first news publications to become internet-based. We're looking forward to expanding our reach with new media such as MySpace to keep Around the Rings as an industry leader."

    A major focus on the site will be highlighting opportunities for youth to become involved in the Olympic Movement. This will include information on the Singapore Youth Games and the Virtual Olympic Congress.

    The ATR MySpace will also contain references to various Olympic-related trivia and pop culture, as well as give users access to sites for both Olympians and sport federations.

    Regular ATR readers as well as new MySpace friends will be able to leave comments and suggestions about the content at www.aroundtherings.com.
    Current MySpace users should log on to http://www.myspace.com/around_the_rings and join the Olympic conversation.

    AroundTheRings.com is the only publication devoted to providing original, on-the-scene reporting about the $5 billion dollar business of the Olympic Movement.

    ATR is available to readers on a subscription basis. For a free two-week trial, contact Kathy Kuczka at kathy@aroundtherings.com.

    Editor Ed Hula is available for interviews; contact publisher Sheila Scott Hula at Sheila@aroundtherings.com or by phone at +1 404 874 1603, ext. 102.
