THE eagerly anticipated Official Rangers Facebook page was launched in July 2011 and was the first step in our dynamic social media strategy.
Since launch, over 250,000 supporters across the world have liked the page and we now have a highly engaged community of Rangers fans who talk about Rangers 24 hours a day from wherever they are across the world.
What is Facebook?
Facebook is a free global social networking website that allows millions of people across the world to keep in contact and up to date with friends, groups, companies, sports teams and in our case, your team, Rangers Football Club.
What do you post?
On a regular day, we tend to post 3 or 4 different posts of a variety of types to match the key times for when you all tend to be online. We tend to change that on matchdays or when there are big news stories where we might have a bit more information for you.
We'll bring you the latest news, behind the scenes pictures, matchday galleries and discussions on all things Rangers.
We hope that you enjoy what we are posting, but we always want to hear from you if you have any suggestions, so please get in touch.
Will you reply to me?
Yes - as with our other social media channels, we have staff who are online throughout most of the day and can answer any direct questions you may have. We won't comment on any kind of speculation though, so transfer queries are off limits, the best place for that news is the club website anyway.
Will you post all news from the club site?
No - we won't put every piece of news that appears on the club website onto the Facebook page as we think you'd soon get bored of Rangers constantly appearing in your news feed.
Our philosophy for the Facebook page is that wherever possible, everything is a question, after all, the page is for you and fans across the world to use to discuss all things Rangers with other fans, wherever they may be.
Do you moderate the content?
Yes - the Facebook page is open to bears of all ages from all walks of life and many different countries across the world. Due to this, we want to make sure anything that could be deemed offensive is removed from view.
We have staff who are online throughout the day to watch where conversations are heading and to remove any comments that need to be removed and we have a team of volunteers from within the Rangers online community who help us with this.
Where has my comment gone?
We want to actively encourage discussion and for fans to discuss their views of a series of different matters relating to Rangers, however at times we do need to remove comments.
The type of things that we remove or are automatically removed are as follows:
(i) We don't allow any use of profanity.
(ii) We don't allow personal abuse of players, staff or other Rangers fans.
(iii) We don't allow posting of URLs (unless we deem them to be relevant to discussion).
(iv) We don't allow for posting of links or discussion of places where fans can watch illegal streams of matches.
I have more questions
If you have any questions then please get in touch with us and we’ll reply as soon as we can. Also, if you have an idea for how we could improve our social media presence or ways of engaging with the fans or if there’s anything that just really annoys you then get in touch.
