    Social networking giant Facebook has launched Sports Stadium -- a dedicated place to experience sports in real time with your friends and the world.

    Now, enjoy sports in real time on Facebook

    In Facebook Sports Stadium, you can see posts from your friends and their comments on plays as well as enjoy commentary from teams, leagues and journalists with easy access to their Facebook Pages. You can follow the action as the game unfolds with a live play-by-play, and even like, comment on, and share individual plays.

    You can also get up to speed quickly with live scores and the most discussed plays. "With 650 million sports fans, Facebook is the world's largest stadium. People already turn to Facebook to celebrate, commiserate, and talk trash with their friends and other fans," wrote Steve Kafka, product manager, in a Facebook Post.

    With Facebook Sports Stadium, it may be tough for Sports Twitter to keep up as Twitter has only 320 million monthly users. "Now we've built a place devoted to sports so you can get the feeling you're watching the game with your friends even when you are not together," he added.

    With Facebook Sports Stadium, all the content on Facebook related to the game is at one place and it comes in real time and appears chronologically. "It's a second-screen experience that we hope makes watching the broadcast even better," Kafka said.

    You can get to Facebook Sports Stadium by searching for the game, and we will surface new ways to get there as the product evolves, he said. "We're rolling this out for American football games and will support other sports around the world like basketball, soccer, and more soon. The experience is available now on iPhone in the US, and will expand to other platforms in the coming weeks," a Facebook post said.
