American College Cricket has been on Facebook before Cricinfo & every major cricket organization, & Facebook has been valuable in our development. Every business has since learned the value of Facebook, Twitter & social media generally. Some of our members have learned these lessons & are helping our movement grow – this is one of our most important Awards.
Pranav Adnani (Northeastern) – despite being abroad (in India on a coop work/study program) Pranav was easily our most active Social Media promoter, sharing EVERY American College Cricket articles & statuses on his PERSONAL Facebook profile, in the Northeastern Cricket club Facebook page, & on Twitter.
In doing so, Pranav displays an understanding of the value of social media in promoting a cause, or business. He is developing a resume & expertise that will serve him well in his future career, as every business values this kind of PR experience.
Honorable mention : Shaffin Fattah of Princeton.
