SPOKANE, Wash. -- A social networking website is predicting that the Gonzaga men will win the NCAA basketball tournament.
LinkedIn traditionally serves as a social network focused on connecting people in a professional setting. However, LinkedIn employees used users’ profile information to calculate their 2013 bracket.
The website based tournament wins on how active Gonzaga University students and alumni are on LinkedIn.com. Website employees calculated wins based on how many Gonzaga fans were using the word ‘basketball’ in their profiles.
The total was divided by the total number of Gonzaga students and alumni on their website.
Gonzaga scored higher than any other school with a team playing in the NCAA tournament.
