Thanks to Nicola for the heads up on this one. It is an almighty cool social media job, especially for a Man United such as myself (and have been for almost 25 years). They look to have come on leaps and bounds since I met with them around a year ago on what they are doing in the field.
As a fan I have not enjoyed a lot of the content, despite the Facebook page growing at a massive rate. This has been more due to the popularity of the club than any great strategy. But that looks like it will be changing. This year they have hired a ‘Head of Content’ in the form of Andrew Diggle, as well as a Senior Digital Media Analyst and Digital Project Manager but this is the first social media specific role at the club. Something many of you will be surprised about no doubt.
