NFL Players Social Networking

Social Networking to Win Good Press!

Today I would like to introduce to you an athlete who uses his MySpace page to reach out to his fans and further promote his charity affiliations. For an NFL rookie, he seems to know a little bit more about keeping a good image than many seasoned veterans.

Let me see yo grillHis name is Reggie Bush, and he wants you to know that he is The Real Reggie Bush [Reggie Bush’s MySpace page]. With 12834 friends, 945 comments, and absolutely no incriminating facts on his page, Reggie Bush has created a simple/pleasing site that many other professionals could take a tip from. Use these social networking sites to your benefit. He lists “no” for smoking and drinking and tells the world that he was smart enough to be a Political Science major (my bias is kicking in).

Since moving to New Orleans to play for the Saints, Reggie has been extremely involved with helping out the community. To check out his charity affiliations, click here.
