Too often the only narrative that is shared about athletes online is examples of negative usage, or tales of caution. Athletes are in a perfect position to utilise the power of positive social media use to shine online.

I decided to collect and collage examples of positive use of social media from athletes, which can be seen and followed on the Pinterest board below. The board is a place to showcase valuable and engaging, quality posts and accounts from around the sports world. It’s constantly being updated with examples. Feel free to send me things you like and I’ll add them.

The next time someone tells you that no good ever came from social media, show them this.
