Rose City ‘Til I Die: Portland Timbers’ Flickr photostream crowdsources PDX’s love of soccer


Rose City ‘Til I Die: Portland Timbers’ Flickr photostream crowdsources PDX’s love of soccer

Portland is a town of many loves. There are the obvious ones. The coffee. The beer. The food. The books. And the technology. But some folks outside the town might not be as well phrased in one of the most well-loved sports in the city: soccer. Or to be more specific: The Portland Timbers.

When billboards of “Timbers fans” began popping up all over town, there were any number of “I could do that” claims from locals. Well, the Timbers heard those claims too. And they took the opportunity to ask their fans to do just that. Now, those images of true Portland Timbers’ fans are available on the Timbers’ Flickr photostream.

Just another interesting way that Portland is using technology, social media, and crowdsourcing to make the city such an awesome place to live.

    It is a social networking promotion I so wish I thought of. It ties in with an already existing campaign and makes those who add the photo to their FB profile minor celebrities among their friends. Good feelings for the team all around on this one.

    Undeniably consider that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be at the net the easiest factor to keep in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as folks consider concerns that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you|
