Points - Localism
Lets get this one out of the way. You don't get any more points because you've posted something to Localism. You can post it in ActiveRain to your peers and get just as many points as you would get posting the content to ActiveRain and Localism.
I left a comment on a post written to ActiveRain real estate agents by a real estate agent wondering why he posted that peer to peer content (and previous peer to peer content) to consumers on Localism. I heard from an innocent bystander that my comment was rude. I guess her point was not about points but just that he did not have many points.... she made a big assumption in her email...
The Point of Localism
The point of Localism is to talk to consumers.
If you write a post saying "Hey ActiveRainers do you wear pantyhose?" you are talking to your peers.
If you write a post saying "Hey Dallas, do you wear pantyhose?" you are talking to the public in Dallas.
If you are a lender, home inspector, stager, builder, etc. talking to RE agents, that is NOT Localism. The same post written to consumers by changing just a few words would be Localism.
Localism is NOT new Bob, Jon, Brad, Rich, Jeremy etc. have written a lot about it. Use the "Search" to read all about Localism. The new Localism was to be edited when it was introduced. Localism is not edited. It is up to us to edit it ourselves.
For those who do understand the difference between talking to peers and talking directly to the general public, what posts about Localism help you to understand best? What do you recommend to new people and old people who struggle to grasp the difference?
If it is just not OK to say on ActiveRain "a pantyhose poll for ActiveRain members is NOT Dallas Localism" Localism will be a failure, again.
