It's much more important to be where your target demographic is. When you're everywhere, there's too much maintenance involved and you tend to attract too many of the wrong people which can waste your time.

No, in fact the is the BIGGEST mistake Realtors make with social media. Pick 3 you frequent and be consitent.

I do 1.FB, 2.AR & 3.LinkedIN and LI links to (4.) Twitter for me.

AR is more than enough for us - and sometimes that's too much - although we continue to get listings from the general public from our AR presence - but nowehere near the amount we did 10 years ago when AR was much smaller...

I did at first.  I even created an account on Ello!  Now I think it's more important to pick a few key ones and be active there.  I'm on my website and 5 social media sites that are mostly on "auto pilot" for postings and such.
