If your relationships with friends aren't made tense enough by political discussion, maybe Facebook's latest feature can help you cull your friends list. The social network announced on Wednesday the launch of Sports Stadium, a dedicated space for conversation during big events.
Twitter tends to be the social network of choice when it comes to discussing live sporting events, primarily because the Facebook newsfeed isn't all that conducive to live reactions and ongoing conversations. Sports Stadium is the site's attempt to siphon off some of that conversation.
Sports Stadium functions like an expanded version of the Trending news section. Users will enter into the arena by searching for the game. Once there, a feed with four tabs appears: one dedicated to live updates, one for posts from your friends, one for experts, and one for stats.
