Canada Flags Wrong During Sochi Hockey Broadcast #epicfail #lol #NBCFail #Really pictwittercom/SQcXwGsqbO Errol Potok (@ErrolPotok) February 15 2014 To be sure there were also plenty of tweets dedicated to discussing the cause of Bob Costas pinkeye Humor was certainly the social lubricant and common language behind much of the content One tweeter posted a cartoon and in Russian playfully compared the cutting of a peacocks wings to NBCs editing of the Sochi 2014 opening ceremony Still what #NBCFail revealed was more or less a counter-narrative to mainstream media with its focus on medal counts and heartwarming athlete backstories While these are not the first instances of a hashtag being used to expose what was not shown they do speak to the role of the citizen social media user as alternate storyteller or active spectator So what can we expect for Rio In short look for more content more clutter and more contracts Research on #SochiProblems which became more popular than the official Sochi handle shows that the vast majority of those tweeting about the problems at the Winter Olympic Games were not actually on the ground in Sochi or even in Russia at the time And since the majority of the world participates in the Olympics remotely via media we can expect this summers social media narratives will come from far beyond Brazil Furthermore despite being a country thats very active on social media its worth noting that the typical social media user is not the typical Brazilian With just over half of the population having access to the internet social media in Brazil remains a medium of privilege Similar to Sochi we can also expect the real social media action in Rio to take place away from official media accounts and hashtags which have grown in presence According to Graeme Menzies communication director for the Vancouver Olympics the 2010 Olympic Games were the first and last social media Olympics In his view social media at the 2010 games was "the peoples media" with little to no organizational involvement Not long after the IOC moved to exert more power over this space partnering with the likes of Facebook Twitter and YouTube to create official Olympic social media content Furthermore social media platforms like Twitter saw the games as an opportunity to attract new users For instance Rio 2016 will see extensive coordination with Twitter and the largest launch of emojis to date The IOC also developed explicit sets of guidelines for how athletes and Olympic personnel should use social media Notably this comes partly in an effort to attract younger audiences but it also comes at the expense of a loss of some social authenticity In addition the IOC relaxed its sponsorship rules for the Rio Olympic Games meaning that the social media space will only become more cluttered with commercial content Preliminary findings from my upcoming study about the Rio games show that one of the most popular Olympics-related topics on Twitter leading up to the event has been the promotion of Airbnb rentals While locals are posting to advertise their own apartments the company does have an official partnership with the IOC Still if we think of the Olympics purely as media content then part of its communicative power lies in the ability to engage people and spotlight a range of issues beyond sport whether short-term apartment rentals or failures of major media networks We can almost be sure that social media will succeed in attracting bigger audiences this year Whether it can have a meaningful impact in shaping the Olympic narratives beyond echoing the mainstream media or corporate partnerships remains to be seen After all general news coverage of the lead-up to the games has itself been fairly harsh and hardly evocative of the party atmosphere the organizers would like us to feel Although increasingly cluttered the power of the citizens’ social media space in relation to the Olympic Games and media corporations lies precisely in its ability to show something unexpected As long as there is still a possibility for that to take place and as long as we are willing to do some more digging for it we should expect some interesting material from Rio and probably some entertaining memes too Katerina Girginova is a Doctoral Student in Communication at University of Pennsylvania This article was
