I have not read anything about how the new website Peeple will impact real estate agents, but I am already easily imagining the horrible fallout from this monstrosity. What budding entrepreneuers will do to make a buck these days does not surprise me. What astonishes me is the number of people who support such actions, and even that probably should not because I am very aware of the Bell Curve. Because I sell real estate in Sacramento, but I digress.
Staying on top of your online reputation is important in the real estate business. There is already a rash of nasty stuff going on that many agents are not even aware of. Such as the horrendous increase of malicious attempts to hack a WordPress website -- those have skyrocketed since September 30th, yet few are discussing that issue on Active Rain that I can see. If you have a WordPress website, you need a firewall and protection against malware, too, but how many agents have it?
