Marathon Monday is one of the best days to be a Boston resident. Everyone takes to the street to watch and socialize, and at least for the last couple of years, the weather has played along (and looks like it will again).
But while you can’t be everywhere across the Marathon route, you can keep tabs on the action thanks to a very neat social media visualization from John Hancock. The Marathon sponsor has an interactive app up on its Facebook page that pulls in all the tweets and Instagrams that use the hashtag #bostonmarathon.
Take a look:
On Monday this should be pretty fascinating to watch. So, go Like John Hancock on Facebook to gain access. It’ll be cool to see to what extent the Twitter and Instagram activity moves across the city with the runners. We may even be able to see it start to spread out to the bars.
Oh, the wonders of Marathon Monday. I know I can’t wait.
