Facebook Page

Our FB “page” is where Neo Admins make social media posts. Facebook users may respond to posts with comments and questions.

Non-Facebook users can look around annonymously.

The Page URL is:
https://www.facebook.com/neocyclingclub/

Facebook Group

Our FB “group” is where you can make social media posts. You can ask questions, and make posts on anything that might interest the group.

You don’t need to be a Neo member to join this group.

Non-Facebook users cannot access this page.

The Group URL is:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/NeoCyclingClub

Facebook Messenger

Sometimes we use Facebook Messenger for logistical reasons. Eg, organising a group ride or where to meet for dinner when we are touring. Messenger is great for that, but please don’t post photos there.

Every photo posted in messenger is a wasted marketing opportunity. Use the Facebook Group to post photos.

Instagram

You don’t need an Instagram account to see our pics:

Social Media Etiquette

Most of us know how to behave on social media by now:

  • If you’re post is nice, go nuts.
  • If not, don’t post.
  • If you think its a grey area, don’t post.

Positive posts only

Please don’t post to the group if you can’t make it to training or racing for whatever reason. -It can have a herd effect.

If you feel you need to let someone know (eg the coach), send them a direct message.
