social media: Google+: Quick and Easy - 11/06/12 06:58 AM
Last week, I got to join Bob Stewart for an ActiveRain University class on Google+. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t so sure what the reaction would be since I’ve spoken about Google+ before and I’ve only gotten lukewarm responses.

Clearly the ActiveRain community is in a league of their own and I’m not just saying that because most of you are G+ savvy, but I’ll admit, it has a little bit to do with it.
I promise, I’m not going to be one of those die hard Google+ fanboys who just raves about Google+ all the time. However, given the … (31 comments)

social media: Social Media No-Nos: Don't Let Politics Hurt Your Real Estate Business - 10/13/12 02:11 AM
You can’t really get anywhere within the social media world of real estate without hearing about Rob Hahn and his infamous blog. I’ve never met Rob in person, but I enjoy seeing his updates. I don’t necessarily agree with 100 percent of the things he posts, but I admire him because, for the most part, I feel like he shares what’s on his mind in an open and honest way.
We’re reaching the tail end of political banter season, and I’m pleased to say there was very minimal hate mongering or propaganda flinging on my newsfeed. I’ve noticed that the … (2 comments)

social media: Why Kerrie is Too Old to be the Community Manager at ActiveRain - 07/24/12 06:53 AM
I have recently been enlightened that 25 year olds are the entitled owners of the social media job sector. Let’s face it. I was PRESENT at the birth of social media. In a way, I’m like the God of social media. Clearly Kerrie missed the boat and is just a poser.
Here are my reasons why she’s just too old, and should let me, the boy prince of Facebook, Google+ genius, Twitter legend, handle her job.
1. 25 year olds have fun: As your community manager, I promise that you’ll feel left out as I will post pictures of that hip party … (44 comments)

social media: What do you meme marketing? - 06/21/12 05:44 AM
Meme [meem] noun: A cultural item that is transmitted by repetition in a manner analogous to the biological transmission of genes.
Officially, this term was coined in 1976 by Richard Dawkins, but today it has evolved to mean so much more. Basically, a meme is an idea that can replicate and evolve, which is the very essence of the Internet. According to the Rules of the Internet (Rule number 24): “Every repost is always a repost of a repost”.
In an Internet environment that both celebrates and destroys originality, memes thrive, becoming trending social shares at any given point. For those … (2 comments)

social media: Facebook "Promoted Posts" Revealed - 06/19/12 06:06 AM
There are a lot of interesting features that have been rolled out for Facebook page managers recently. The scheduling function and admin roles assignment have been the two most talked about features within the real estate, social media sector of Facebook. Yet there are two other features that deserve attention because they will doubtless change the way we look at Facebook as a networking channel from a community manager/marketer’s point of view.
If you manage or own a page, you may be familiar with some of the features I’ve mentioned above. Let’s take a look at what happens when you try … (31 comments)

social media: Pinterest and Its Place In Conversation - 02/22/12 01:43 AM

Pinterest, PLEASE
Oh yes. Another thrilling post about Pinterest, the new kid on the block. Much like the rise of hit music sensation, Rebecca Black, there was just as much hype as there was criticism.
I'll be honest: my initial reaction to Pinterest was not pleasant. It seemed to be an arena for women and I would not let my manly ego dip so low as to participate for the mere sake of social media. Yet months have passed and Pinterest really has grown on me.
I won't go too much into detail in terms of SEO, copyright infringement and what … (2 comments)
