For the second year in a row, the NFL has implemented a social media method in the fan-voting process for the Pro Bowl.
The 2018 Pro Bowl will take place in Orlando, Florida on Sunday, January 28 at 1 p.m. PT and will be televised a week before the Super Bowl on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC. Tickets for the game are on-sale now.
For a full breakdown of the fan voting process, you can visit the Pro Bowl website here, but here's a quick overview of the three ways to vote your favorite players to Orlando this year on the web:
1. Twitter Direct Message (Nov. 14 — Dec. 14)
New to voting for the Pro Bowl is the DM Voting experience, which allows fans to enter their votes through entry cards tweeted from their favorite team. Fans can also enter by initiating the "Vote For Pro Bowl" box on the @NFL Twitter page. A DM voting bot will guide fans through their selections and enable fans to select a position group or search for a player or team to begin the voting process.
2. Twitter Hashtag Vote (Dec. 7 — Dec. 14)
For the second consecutive year, fans have the opportunity to vote for their favorite players using hashtags on Twitter.
What To Use
ProBowlVote + Player Name (Ex. #ProBowlVote Russell Wilson)
ProBowlVote + #PlayerName (Ex. #ProBowlVote #RussellWilson)
ProBowlVote + @PlayerUserName (Ex. #ProBowlVote @DangeRussWilson)
Tweets, retweets and replies that include both the #ProBowlVote hashtag and the player's name in one of the above-noted variations.
3. Website Voting (Nov. 14 — Dec. 14)
As always, the traditional method of voting for players online using NFL.com’s ballot will be the classic way to send your favorites to Orlando.
