Manchester United extend social reach further with G+ and Instagram

Manchester United today extended the reach of its global social media activity with the launch of official pages on Google+, Instagram and Renren. This follows the club’s successful launches on Twitter and Sina Weibo last month.

The new Google+ page (www.google.com/+manutd) will create an online community for Manchester United fans to engage with the club and other members of the community across an exciting new platform. With over 500m Google+ users across the world, the page will enable the club to share behind-the-scenes content, unique features and exclusive interviews. A live Google+ Hangout with two members of the first team will take place in late August, with details to be announced shortly.

The club is also establishing a presence on Instagram (www.instagram.com/manchesterunited), a photo and video sharing service with over 130m users worldwide. This will allow fans to access, share and interact with the club’s iconic imagery and exclusive videos.

In China, Manchester United is launching an official page on Renren (http://page.renren.com/manutd) a Chinese-language social media network that will allow the club to further engage with its 108 million followers in the country.

Today’s announcement follows the successful launches on Twitter and Sina Weibo pages last month, each breaking growth records in their first month of operation. Manchester United also has over 34 million fans on its Facebook page, which launched in 2010.
