Facebook is aiming to become a one-stop shop for fans looking for information about the Olympics with a new hub with links to athletes, teams and sports. The hub includes links to Michael Phelps, Aly Raisman, Jessica Hardy and Logan Tom, among others. Fans can also follow teams from various countries, including Team Ireland, the Swiss Olympic Team and, of course, the US Olympic Team. Facebook has also launched a Page for The Olympic Games where fans can follow the action. That Page already has 2.8 million fans. Read the full story at Mashable.
