Now that the FIFA World Cup 2010 is in full swing, players have been advised not to use social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, as it may effect the way in which they play. Players will not have the opportunity to tweet, poke, buzz or checkin.
According to Mashable, big teams such as Brazil, Germany, Argentina and England have so far banned their team members from using any social media sites.
In recent times, during the American football and basketball seasons, it has been apparent that players in the NFL, are prohibited from using all social media sites during all games, and for a 90 minute period to and following a game.

Are the coaches for these teams doing us a favor by imposing a strict ban, therefore the players would be more focused for the matches that lay ahead? Tell us what you think?
