InGameNow is a recently launched community for sports fans that uses a similar distribution method to Twitter for sending user-generated sports news, opinion, and commentary. These updates are also filtered based on the number of votes that a given user has received.
Basically, the more reputable a user is, the higher up on the page their comments are displayed. While they don’t currently support SMS, InGameNow does allow you to get your updates by instant messenger, mobile internet and email so you don’t necessarily have to visit the main page to receive your updates. To get started, sign up for an account, create a profile, and then subscribe to updates on your favorite teams, games, or friends. You can also post content, rate it, and earn points to gain respect in the community.
