Uncovering Your "Hidden" Inbox in Facebook

by Drew Meyers on 11:54 pm December 20, 2011

Katie Lance at Inman Next put together a great video showing you how to uncover your “hidden” inbox in Facebook. In addition to messages directed at only you, there may be “hidden” messages posted on your business pages to uncover as well. For agents, hidden messages mean potential leads that you are missing out on. I checked my own hidden inbox and found a few legitimate messages that I just responded to, in addition to a whole bunch of other messages that were indeed SPAM. … Read More »

Using The Roost App To Plan Your Facebook Posts For The Week

by stephaniecrawford on 12:45 pm September 6, 2011

I’ve been using the Roost App to pre-plan my Facebook business page posts for a few weeks and I must say that I’m impressed with the ease, convenience and supplied content.

The Roost app makes this simple. Their claim that you can spend only 20 … Read More »

by Joe Trusty on 3:02 pm August 4, 2011

I’ve noticed an interesting trend developing; agents are adding MLS Widgets to their Facebook page. Some of the Apps being developed for Facebook are complete websites onto themselves that using clever scripting to shoehorn themselves into the Facebook Platform. Others offer sophisticated lead capture capabilities. One thing is for certain, IDX Vendors are beginning to provide Agents with a way to tap into Facebook’s 500 Million+ user base and providing home buyers with new tools to find homes inside their favorite Social Media platform.

by Joe Salcedo on 1:43 pm July 22, 2011

Zillow’s closing stock price went ‘down’ to $33.20,  almost $14 to what they wanted. They got a cool $70 million for it, $20 million more than what they were hoping.  Not bad for a real estate related IPO. By now, everyone is chimed in with how excited Wall St. is with internet stocks, specifically those that are leading the ‘social’ bandwagon; starting with Google’s failed $6 billion offer to Groupon, LinkedIn’s warm reception and Facebooks’s massive valuation — are you kidding me, $100 billion?!

One Thing I Like About Google+

by Drew Meyers on 8:10 pm July 10, 2011

Google+ has already been covered by everyone and their mother, so I don’t want to write some all encompassing analysis of the platform since it would be largely the same content others have already written.

After all, it’s only natural that I follow some people like David Gibbons, whom … Read More »
