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

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.  SeeMyListings.com Widget

Use SeeMyListings.com 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 Realtor.com to place your listings on your Facebook profile.  Here are the steps:

Step 1 - Go to www.SeeMyListings.com.

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.

I added that to my Facebook account last week but wonder if there's a way to show more listings or to priortize the ones that show up on the front page.

Kevin/Monica - There are some limitations.  You can't prioritize listings and it doesn't pull commercial listings.  There is some discussions on the Facebook fan page that discuss this and other issues.

Don - I hope it helps.

Tim - Good to hear from my colleagues in St. Louis.  I hope it helps.

Loreena - I am glad I posted it to multiple groups on LinkedIn.  However, it seems to have started a controversy among self-proclaimed social media purists and alarmist who, from their posts, see placing this widget on your Facebook profile page as the social media equivalent of the black plague.

Nancy - I am glad it helps.

Marc - I hope it helps.

Malcolm - Don't know how effective it really is... but every little thing helps.

Anthony - Often the comments are as instructive as the post.  A good discussion always improves ideas.

Andrew - I rarely un-friend people.  However, the most annoying posts are the gaming posts - just pure junk.
