Exeter City embraces the use of social media to keep supporters up to date in the high-tempo and quickly-evolving world of football.
As well as using traditional methods such as newsletters and the matchday programme to keep supporters informed as to what's happening at St James Park, we also use the official website www.exetercityfc.co.uk extensively as well as the social media channels listed below.
It isn't a one-way street - our social channels allow Grecians to share material and join in the conversation about all of Exeter City's highs and lows in real-time.
Our premium audio and video service, this is the only place online to get extended Exeter City match highlights, exclusive interviews and other great content – starting at 10p per day, it’s the perfect way to get closer to the Grecians. It is also the only way to get full, live, digital-quality match commentary for every first-team game, wherever you are in the world.
Facebook users can be kept up to date with Exeter City news by hitting the ‘Like’ button. Via Facebook, we link to content from the club’s official website, other interesting stories involving the Grecians from around the web, post photos, and keep scores updated on matchday – and the Comment function allows City fans to share their views with each other.
Grecians supporters can keep tabs on City in an up-to-the-second manner using Twitter. By hitting ‘Follow’ you’ll add Exeter City to your stream, where we post and retweet interesting material about Exeter City, as well as pulling in video, audio and photographic content and giving minute-by-minutes match updates on matchdays.
We’re affiliated to Google and their ‘social layer’ Google+ through our membership of Football League Interactive. Seamlessly integrated with Google’s other services, it allows you to follow more Exeter City content, including the unique Hangouts On Air function where we occasionally broadcast non-matchday events via live video streams.
LinkedIn is the leading online networking platform for businesses and professionals, and this is a great way of sharing our commercial and corporate content including business news from St James Park, sponsorship opportunities, matchday packages and other news tailored to the professional world.
The Exeter City YouTube channel allows the club to share video content including match highlights and interviews to a wide audience – however full versions are usually reserved for subscribers to Grecian Player. YouTube is a well-integrated platform that works in tandem with other social media channels, and is also a great avenue for some of our lighthearted content.
An audio-only network, audioBoom is a way of Exeter City sharing audio content – primarily interviews with club management and players – with a wider audience. Material uploaded to audioBoom can also be accessed as a podcast – open your podcast player and search for ‘Exeter City News & Views’.
A mobile-based social network, Instagram allows Exeter City to share natty photo and video content with supporters, giving behind-the-scenes access to the Grecians. It works in conjunction with other networks including Facebook and Twitter so that supporters that don’t use Instagram themselves can still see the content.
