Attention, sports fans! Facebook is adding a feature that'll make it that much easier to keep up with your favorite teams and share all your trash-talking and hot takes. (Video via SportsMania / CC BY 3.0)
It's called Facebook Sports Stadium, and it's essentially a hub chock-full of content related to whatever sports game you're watching. Well, it's only for American football for now, but the company says it's adding in other sports soon.
You can keep an eye on stats and scores, all of which are updated live; you can find out where to watch the game on TV; you can see sports commentary from journalists and others; and you can see what your friends are saying about the game.
