The supporter base on the web is being segmented, partly this is because the club itself failed to take the lead and either adopt or support sites like our own. the club was either a bit short-sighted or paranoid about liability.

Lot's of the FB sites are trying to be "exclusive" by making their content private, and if you try to cross link or promote another site they'll ban you, they are a bit full of themselves.

A smart thing for this site might have been to adopt the AFLW more whole-heartedly and become the hub for fans, post some exclusive content, etc., etc., but it would require changes to how we handle attachments and links. It's not trivial or cheap to make a site usable for short videos and functional, most kids are Insta-based, it's hard for a text based site like this to compete.

Kids don't read anymore, they watch a video about how to type a resumé! :o

If a FB page was considered an effective way to generate additional traffic to this site then it would be foolhardy not to trial the idea.

However, prior to doing it, then some of the potential pitfalls need to acknowledged so that contingencies can be put in place should the existence of the FB page have a detrimental effect overall.

Added to that and this goes to the heart of why people are suggesting a FB page be created, there needs to be a dedicated recruiting campaign put in place very shortly. With the new season upon us, there is excitement & anticipation in the air and that is the best time to lure new faces in.

I would recommend that someone on the management/moderator team be tasked with coming up with a short bullet-point list of things that can be done to promote CSC overall. There may need to be the creation of a 2-3 person team who's sole role is to implement & oversee that recruiting push.

I have just gone on to FB and searched both 'CSC' & 'Carlton Supporters Club' and no page was forthcoming, however, around 8-9 other fan pages came up.  :(

To that end, is a FB page going to get lost in the plethora of other options already in existence. 

Is the existence of too many FB pages actually an opportunity to gather lapsed posters to a 'merged entity' and then in turn, over to here ??

I use Bing as my search engine
CSC is the first thing that comes up when I  type in Carlton supporters
But as someone mentioned before that may have something to do with the way the search engine gathers information. As I use this site a lot so it shows up for me but maybe not so much others..
Interestingly this topic on CSC shows up on the second page of my Bing search.

On facebook try entering just "Carlton  Supporters".
Once again it might be the algorithm ...but it's second on the list for me.
