The LSU faithful on Facebook won't have to worry this fall. Southeastern Conference officials say social networking sites in Tiger Stadium won't be banned afterall.

After giving CBS exclusive rights to game coverage, the SEC released a new fan ticket policy.

The draft contained a guideline that made fans believe they would be prohibited from using any type of service that would be in direct competition with the network including taking pictures and logging onto social networking sites.

Officials issued a revision Tuesday afternoon that only bans fans from producing videos and play by play for comerical use. The final draft assures fans can post pictures as well as game updates.
