Bleacher Report #BRSqaudU College Social Influencers

Bleacher Report (B/R), a platform that combines a passion for sports culture with a commitment to producing the best content, sought to build a network of influencers to increase awareness of new social features within the app.

Situation YMC recruited a dedicated group of student influencers to amplify usage of new in-app social features and create campus-based communities of active, engaged fans.
