The Internet has created countless new ways to get fans closer than ever to their favorite sports team. Now, the Islanders have jumped in and launched a Facebook page for their fans.
As part of the "Official New York Islanders" Facebook page, fans will have the opportunity to chat live on Facebook with Islanders players. Today, from 12:30–1 pm, Islanders forward Jeff Tambellini will be signed onto Facebook and chatting with fans live. All participants of the Facebook chat with Tambellini, ages 18 or over, are eligible to receive a signed Tambellini Islanders jersey. A winner will be selected at random.
To chat live with Tambellini, become a fan of the "Official New York Islanders" page and become friends with N.Y. Islanders (the profile with the Islanders logo). Access the chat function of Facebook on the bottom right portion of your screen when you are signed into Facebook and begin chatting with N.Y. Islanders.
The Islanders' Facebook page also includes downloadable Islanders buddy icons, wallpaper and photos. Stay connected with other Islanders fans by posting on the wall or starting a topic of conversation.
