Social media platforms are a way to attract and engage an audience by sharing relevant, interesting and valuable content and community-based input, and encouraging interaction, engagement and collaboration.
Facebook is probably the most utilised social media platform and it is likely that a lot of your club members already engage with Facebook. It is the easiest and quickest way to get pānui out, promote events and club activities, post photos and videos, and engage with your club members.
It is recommended that you set up your Facebook page as a business so you can access additional tools within the Facebook Business Manager platform.
