At Big League Fantasy we’re all about letting you play fantasy football against your friends with as little effort as possible. Facebook and Twitter sign in allows us to accomplish this - when you sign up for Big League, you’re automatically in a league with all of your friends who also play Big League. If you sign up through Twitter, we give you the option of who to play against based on the follow/following relationship, while If you sign up through Facebook, you play against all of your Facebook friends. You can of course add both Facebook and Twitter sign in and play against friends from both social networks.
Each platform offers unique benefits. We love the idea of being able to play against anyone you follow or who follows you on Twitter - imagine getting to play fantasy football against your favorite NFL player! Twitter is also a much lighter weight identity, and recent research suggests users are more willing to sign up for services with Twitter than Facebook.
Facebook on the other hand offers more integrated gameplay - you can stick your Big League Add/Drops to your timeline and talk Big League trash inside Facebook, all with more context and structure than the Twitter feed. In the case of many apps, such integration isn’t desired. Apps like SocialCam get a lot of flak for oversharing, but we think we’ve found a comfortable amount of sharing for users who want to play against their Facebook friends in fantasy football, and who want those friends to know how their team is doing.
So why are we giving you more salary room if you sign up with Facebook? Simple- we post stories to Facecbook on your behalf. Nothing crazy or personal - we post players you add, players you drop, and your weekly scores. We like to think of it as you owning a team in a big market - when you’re the Giants or the Patriots or the Cowboys, your team gets the extra scrutiny. More beat reporters, more national attention. When you sign up with Facebook, your every move is news, and we award you the salary accordingly!
If you sign up for Big League Fantasy with Facebook, we’ll give you an extra 2,000k to spend on players.
You also get 100k for every friend you refer to Big League, and you can raise your salary cap at any time: $1.00 gets you 100k to spend on players.
