(WHAS11) -- Social media has become a major part of the action during big sporting events like the Super Bowl and baseball's all-star game. It's no surprise that fans of the Olympics have more options than ever to follow the action.

This year's summer Olympics will offer a large amount of social interaction. Between Facebook, Twitter, websites and apps, it's easy to get driven to digital distraction. 

Identifying who you want to get your information from will help you better understand which tools to use, and not overwhelm you, at the same time.

Tech expert Mario Armstrong recommends a dashboard app like "Banjo" that puts material from multiple social networking tools in one place.

The best part of some Olympic apps is live, extra streaming video. The worst part? That can eat up data quickly so run those apps on wi-fi. That way you're off of the data charges, you're going to get a better connection in some cases to view the video and content. And you'll keep that bill way down.
