Stop Annoying Your Facebook Connections - Use to Place Your Listings on Your Profile Page

This is a blog from Ryan Shaughnessy that can help you with your listings on facebook. I like this free widget because it frees up my status bar from seeing all of the "new listings" that my realtor contacts put out. A realtor who is active on facebook should have a fanpage that seperates them from their personal profile if they want to seperate the two worlds. Or the realtor can filter his or her "friends" into categories to seperate the type of information he or she is sharing with each category. If you don't want to create a fanpage, try this widget out. I think you'll like it and your friends on facebook will too.

The Marketing Machine - Annoying your Friends, Family and Other Members of Your Social Network

Social networking sites such as Facebook can be great tools for keeping in touch with members of your sphere of influence.  Keeping your friends and family informed of your professional interests is an appropriate use of social networking sites.  However, there is a fine line between sharing your professional insights and experiences on social networking sites and using social networking sites as an advertising and marketing machine.  For those new to social networking sites, it is easy to take the wrong approach to social networking by blasting your listing information repeatedly to your connections.

Use Widget to Place Your Listings on Your Facebook Profile

For Facebook users, there is now a simple solution.  Use the listing widget provided by the National Association of Realtors and to place your listings on your Facebook profile.  Here are the steps:

Step 1 - Go to

Step 2 - Click on "Add My Listings.

Step 3 - Log on to your Facebook account.

Step 4 - Enter your MLS provider and user name.

Step 5 - Click on "Add to Profile" or "Update Listings."

In a few simple steps, you are able to automate the addition of your listings to your Facebook profile.  Given the number of Realtors who I am connected to on Facebook who aren't using this feature, I thought I would post this this short how-to post to get them motivated.  Five easy steps to get your listings on Facebook without annoying your friends, family and even colleagues.

Thanks for sharing this information. I think FaceBook can be a great tool, but a lot of realtors abuse the network with what amounts to spam. People who wouldn't dream of talking about a listing at a funeral or other public settings are busy giving themselves a bad rep by non-stop marketing. It's a social network, not a marketing tool. This widget might help them make sense of the difference.

Dave, thanks for dropping by. If you decide to use this, let me know what you think. As a loan officer, I don't have any listing to test on this widget.

That sounds like a good idea,

I hope some agents will start using it.

Thank you Anthony.
