why digital digital natives is why
Why digital? “Digital natives” is why!

Don’t read newspapers

No landline phone

Television on their terms

Trust peers more than experts

Internet experience is social

Content is going mobile

Television is for video games

Want to be heard and self-express

Email is for parents

On demand content

why facebook
Why Facebook?

Unique users (UK) – 22.81

Share of time on social media sites – 75.4%

Time spent per user per month – 6 hours

Visits per user per month – 18

why fb
Why FB?

Network effect

In December, BUCS page had 5,000 fans

But University Community Sports Hub Pages had 25,000 fans

Giving BUCS a reach of 30,000 for its videos & photos, and ultimately its other campaigns

a few more stats
A few more stats


Facebook internal data

Office of National Statistics

Higher Education Statistics Agency

Facebook has 300 million users worldwide

48% of these are under 25

4.9 million 17-22 year olds in the UK

2.3 million students in HE in the UK

1.9 million are at English HEIs

Roughly 85% of this age are on facebook so:

4.1 million 17-22 year olds in the UK

2.0 million students in HE in the UK

1.6 million at English HEIs

Facebook is part of the daily routine

25 minutes

2 visits a day

50% return daily

Why FB? Advertising

BUCS page

    • Specific to your purpose and objectives
why fb safety

Sport name (don’t forget Americanisms?)

Event name

Location (University /stadium/city/town/country)


Players/teams involved (players only tangible benefit for high profile players)

Game highlights (for high profile games)

And let’s have a look at recommended videos cascading down through your pages

general advice
General advice

Agree a corporate account and all share it to upload videos

Work in best size for each system if you have the capacity

Remember that each video platform itself will bring you an audience as well as the SSNP

So don’t cut corners when titling, tagging, describing and categorising uploads

And change the file names to reflect keywords

structure of your page network
Structure of your page network
  • Think of pages as “permanent”
  • And content (eg Events) as transitory


  • Approach from the visitors perspective – they don’t really care how the RFL is structured!
  • Start with as few pages as you are comfortable with
  • Be honest – what will motivate your visitors:
    • To join/like your page
    • To engage with your content
    • To contribute content
  • We’ll start to ball rolling, and let’s discuss!
no regions fewest pages
No regions – fewest pages

Gives 1 single event calendar

Concentrates fans for maximum engagement

But less “local” feel?

And all admins would have access to main page

promoting a local event

Let’s develop a checklist – and look beyond Facebook too!

advertising your page
Advertising your page

Best practice

Let’s build an advert!

communicating with your fans
Communicating with your fans
  • Share photos, video, messages on your wall
    • If links, include the URL in the message too
    • Message styles that work:
      • Questions
      • Topical
      • Rousing the crowd
  • Send messages to user segments
    • Hit “updates” in inbox, not the most effective
other easy steps
Other easy steps
  • Promote on your own web site & blog:
    • comes from
  • Integrate with Twitter
    • Facebook -> Twitter, from “edit page”
    • Twitter -> Facebook,
    • Link with caution
    • Consider linking temporarily during large events?
develop your network
Develop your network
  • Befriend other web sites & page owners
    • Will they help to spread your message?
    • Would they be happy for you to post your news to their wall? Or would they do it for you?
      • Most will agree if high quality content, say 1 photo from your set, with an invite/link to view the rest
  • Don’t forget bloggers!
    • Still very influential
  • And players
    • Which ones have Facebook pages, blogs, their own web sites?
  • And Twits (or as David Cameron called them ...)
  • Suggestion: build a master list of your influencers, and how they want to receive your/their news

If you don’t measure it ...

... you can’t IMPROVE it

Use Google Analytics ability to track URL parameters as campaigns

Just come up with a common approach (spreadsheet) that means you can allocate a new cod each time someone publishes a link

Example – where you might use a coded url
