Social Networking and Real Estate

March 19th, 2010 · No Comments · Social Networking

For the life of me I cannot figure out why someone would Twitter? And, yet I do? I don’t understand the appeal of virtual stalking unless you’re a celebrity desperate for attention? So far, I can’t think of anyone other than Hunter S. Thompson that would be interesting enough to be interested in what their doing. My problem is Hunter S. Thompson is dead. I’m confused, is Twitter for twits? Is this a viral experiment for lemmings?
As professional realtors we’re inundated with invitiations from social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn,Plaxo,Ning, Twitter,Merchant’s Circle and that’s just the tip of the iceburg. When is enough, enough?
To participate on any of these sites takes a lot of time. But, is it time well spent? These sites have been around for a couple of years now. Have they lived up to their promises of creating more opportunities for real estate professionals? And now, let’s move to the future…say 2013? And, see what’s happening?
