Debut of UltraFan Sports Social Networking Site Levels the Playing Field for Worldwide Fan Interaction
XOS Technologies, Inc., announced the official launch of UltraFan, a new online social networking community specifically geared toward sports fans.
XOS developed the online community to inspire team fervor while simultaneously bridging the communication gap between worldwide sports fans.

The goal with UltraFan has always been to provide a total-package experience for fans, said Nada Usina, president, XOS Network. And right now we re in the heart of football season, with basketball and hockey just warming up, so this site couldn t have arrived at a more perfect time for fired-up sports fans.
As a highly customized online network, UltraFans can deck out their profiles with their favorite team colors and logos. By visiting www.UltraFan.com, fans can ceate a free personal profiles, post video files, post tailgate pictures, blog about favorite player, post bulletins about the latest game, send messages and network with fellow fans, and rate other fans profiles.
Along with blogging, UltraFan boasts superior video capabilities, so the community maintains balance and captures the best of both worlds, Usina said. As a result, it empowers fans to express themselves in a variety of ways and to interact through a more satisfying means.
UltraFan users also have access to CollegeSportsDirect.com right from the UltraFan log-in page.

UltraFan is in and of itself a very unique opportunity for our partners to drive traffic to their official athletics sites and right now only XOS can offer it to leagues and teams.
