CLEVELAND -- Facebook and Twitter were just the beginning. Now, the Cleveland Indians are adding even more social media and technology to connect with fans this season.
Tribe fans can now not only interact with one another on multiple social media platforms, but they can even use a new smartphone app to order their food right from their seats at the ballpark.
In all, the Cleveland Indians will use six social media platforms, including four new additions for 2012.
For starters, the team's social media suite returns for a second year and allows fans the opportunity to request a free ticket to watch the game from the suite while texting, blogging, and sharing their experience on-line.
The Tribe's Facebook and Twitter presences will increase this year, but the team also announced some new ways to connect:
TribeVibe is a blog that takes fans in to the dugout and out on the road with the team through behind-the-scenes photos, videos and insider perspectives from players and staff.
Step into the Home marks the Indians debut on Tumblr. Fans will get a visual celebration of the landscape, memories, people and culture surrounding the team.
The team also encourages fans to interact via special Tribe pages on Pinterest and Google+.
