Conversations on the Sidelines: A Look at Google Sidewiki
Google has launched a new application that allows website visitors to comment about a webpage they are visiting and read other visitors comments. These comments appear as a sidebar on the left-hand side of the page called Sidewiki. Users are also able to rate the comments as useful, not useful, or report abuse.
In true sharing fashion you can share the sidewiki comments on Twitter, Facebook or via Email. Brings a different sort of meaning to the power of referrals.
You can install the Google toolbar with Sidewiki here.
I took a walk around the worldwide web this evening with Google Sidewiki and took a few snapshots
I just couldn't resist so I took a quick jog over here before heading home
I strolled by the top real estate franchises, but only found one, Re/Max, that had a sidewiki comment. I suspect that will change.......real soon.
Sidewiki seems like the user friendly app. it was meant to be and I am sure there will be some tweaks and changes along the way. Most importantly, in my view, it will enable the flow of conversation and empower users with feedback from hopefully many impartial parties- i.e. other consumers or business folk who do not all have a commercial interest in the webpage.
As to real estate brokerages, offices, and real estate professionals....just another reason to be active listeners and engage in two way conversations on the worldwide web.
