It depends what it is and who it is. I had a mutual friend, new to the business, post the listing of another agent and suggest the kind of buyer who should check it out. Yikes! I sent her an email with the fair housing link. No one in her large agency told her but a couple complained to her broker.

She and I have become friends:)

Most of the time I just ignore it unless it is going to affect someone negatively.

It is rude to correct in public, so I try to avoid doing so unless it is something where numerous people are propagating the mistake.

I have not yet personally been in that situation, and it would depend on what the subject was Joseph Domino 480-390-6011.  Today it can be hard to be tactful, because what is acceptable to some, would not be to others - and some are very sensitive to criticism.  I probably would not say anything, though if I did, it would be as 'painless' as possible.  I know one time I misunderstood a question, and my comment back was probably not pertinent - people were kind to me and didn't correct me.  I realized this the following day, and just let it ride itself out.  My comment was one of many, and I learned from other's comments.

If I read something that is wrong and it hits a nerve, then I would try and contact the person if possible. We are in a time of so called "fake news", and not just political stuff and we should all try to post things on the internet that is truthful. However, I'm yet to come across fake news, just people saying it's fake, but not telling me why or correcting it with the truth

Many writers will tell you that presenting something that is NOT PERFECT gets more response, more engagement than the complete piece.

I would assume the error was intentional and use my best skills to present the alternative.
