Is it still Raining?

Industry Observer

With apologies, and an old fashioned hearts cry for somebody to say yes.... and show me why and how...

Is AR still relevant?  Has facebook stolen the thunder from blogging?  

Speak up!  I want to know : )  And I want to believe!

Lonn - yes, it is!  I was contacted twice this week because of Active Rain.  One was from an agent on the east coast that found me and has a buyer referral for me.  The other one was from a past client of mine, from over 10 years ago, who is an out of the area mortgage broker but also an investor and looking to start purchasing in the Sacramento area again...

Lonn - I am seriously impressed with how fast Facebook has grown.  Being able to locate and connect with friends and clients on a social level makes it a powerful service.

They are both valid and useful...each addressing a very large market from a different angle.

I use them both.  So far, they are both relevant to me.  I'm wondering if you're seeing a future for us....

Glad to hear it is still raining : )

Facebook has created yet another landscape, a playing field all its own.  I just don't know how fractured the communication channel can get and still be efficient.  

Even the TV news channels (the ultimate media) have to play both online and at facebook, and twitter.  At least they have a paid staff to do all that work in triplicate or quadriplicate (is that even a word?).   

When they have news, they have to make a video, put the story online, tweet a headline, and post a teaser to facebook.  How many times will we have to repeat a real estate announcement to make sure we hit all the eyeballs we need to reach?
