Social Networking - Networks

/ Category:

In Real Estate, social networking has been around longer than the phone, and longer than computers. When you look at social networking in todays market, it's all about Websites and Blogs. The first real social networking started with AOL and was then taken to the next level with MySpace.com. If you are in any branch of the Real Estate Business today, you must be and stay connected in order to be successful.


The first one we really liked is Active Rain. There are over 57,000 Industry Professionals sharing knowledge, resources and business there. Active Rain is a great place to get connected and start your Blogging experience. It's social networking at it's best.

Next you might consider LinkedIn.com which is exactly what the name entitles. You can connect to so many other individuals and LinkedIn does all the research to tell you who you'd be best connected to.

While your searching for other social networking groups, you won't want to miss FaceBook.com. They are yet another site that focuses on networking, but takes the lighter side to the whole process. You can interact more on a "Out On The Town" sort of way.

is a great tool and place to connect with others if you're still not feeling all the love. This site helps to connect you with visitors that come by your Blog or website. Many of techknowbabble's readers come from here.

If that weren't enough to keep you buried in Blogs and social networking, then join Cre8Buzz.com. This is the newest social networking group to the scene and it's not limited to the Real Estate Industry. This is a new and upcoming site that promises to bring yet more value to the whole social networking thing.

And here's my final Network for the year, and maybe for all time! Check this one out, you won't be disappointed and you'll see why when you get there. I'm not just the founder, I'm a member!

Now that you're connected, and you're making friends, connections, meeting new people, referring business and gaining priceless knowledge, you better hope your computer doesn't up and crash! Imagine going back to the old fashioned way of "Social Networking!"

Brad - I am on all but MySpace. I swear I am adding a new one every month. Not to mention the social bookmarking sites! I find that Flickr connects me with locals as well.

Ashley - thanks for stopping by! I think Myspace was the first one to take "Social Networking" to the next level. It's really geared more toward a younger and less serious audience, however, I have also seen some pretty cool pages and have heard some great success stories that have come from there. I also use flikr.com, another great service and widget!
