Open Graph: Improving Social Media Conversions

by Ben Kubic on 6:22 am November 24, 2015

When you post something on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, do you close your eyes and hope that it looks the way you want it to? If so, you should be using Open Graph, the social media protocol designed by Facebook back in 2010. Open Graph is one of those technologies that sounds complicated (probably because it was designed by engineers) but is actually really simple to implement and has a profound impact on the spread of your content. At it’s core, Open Graph is a few … Read More »

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. However, one feature I love is the ability in Google+ to easily see a feed activity for my close business connections (I created a circle called “closebizfriends”) without the clutter of everyone else in my network. After all, it’s only natural that I follow some people like David Gibbons, whom … Read More »

After a bit of thought and asking TechSavvyAgent and Matthew Shadbolt for their opinions, #reblogchat is being renamed to #retechchat so that we can cover topics outside of real estate blogging down the road. For instance, we may want to select real estate CRM’s, utilizing iPads for listing presentations, or SEO as the topic of conversation for a particular week. Success online involves more than just blogging, and we want to have the flexibility to cover all topics agents and brokers are interested in discussing. If … Read More »

Fair Warning: for the advanced techies reading this, you’ll want to gloss right over this post. And I won’t hold it against you.
