There are a lot of different things to love about the Olympics. Maybe you like cheering on your team or watching your favorite sport. As for us, we鈥檙e聽already planning our opening ceremony party. But one thing鈥檚 for certain: It鈥檚 impossible to keep up with all of the聽Olympics unless you leave all your obligations for two weeks straight, and that鈥檚 just not possible. That鈥檚 why we鈥檙e going to rely heavily on social media for the next few weeks 鈥 especially Facebook. The social network announced several features rolling out just in time for the games.

Winning at olympic games, hand holding gold medals

Users will be able to show their support for their favorite team by using聽temporary frames on their profile pictures for the countries participating.聽And, effective now, the Facebook homepage is going to start looking a bit different. When聽users spot an Olympic icon聽in their news feeds, they will be able to click through to a page with special Olympic content. There, they will find personalized search results, conversations and even live videos from the games. There will also be listings with all local Olympic events for those who feel like heading out and celebrating with the neighborhood.

You have quite a few options to follow the Olympics this summer: You can catch a last-minute flight down to Brazil, camp out in front of your TV 24/7 or get all the highlights from your social media. Guess which option we鈥檙e picking?
