Great post by Bill Gassett on the importance of Social Networking! Via Bill Gassett Metrowest Massachusetts Real Estate (RE/MAX Executive Realty): I just read a very interesting article over at Web Pro News that talks about how Google will now be incorporating your social network connections as a factor in delivering search results! As Chris Crum, a writer for Web Pro News points out, "If you are one of those people still skeptical about the business uses of social media, you may be interested to know that Google's Social Search is no longer just an experiment."
