  • Why Realtors Are Hesitant To Use Facebook
    • They don’t understand the privacy settings and hence don’t know how to filter private and public posts.
    • They don’t want other Realtors to have access to their personal friends and clients.
    • Afraid they will post something to someone else’s wall or their own wall and don’t know who can actually see it.
    • They don’t understand “the technology”
    • They don’t know how to avoid being inundated with friend requests
    • They don’t know how to allocate time for using Facebook.
  • Four Things To Know
    • Profile page
    • Wall
    • Newsfeed
    • Sending private messages
  • Profile Page
    • Your profile page should contain as much contact information about you as possible for people to connect with you.
  • Profile Page
    • The “Wall” is where you post your “status updates”. Unless you change your privacy settings, anything you post here is visible to ANY of YOUR friends.
  • How Do I Post Something On My Wall?
    • 1: First decide whether you want to share a status update, question, photo, link or video
    • 2: Click the corresponding link at the top of your Wall.
    • To change who can see your post, select the lock icon drop-down menu below the post.
    • 3: Press the blue "Share" button in the lower right corner to add the post to your Wall.
  • Sharing with a small group of friends:
    • Use the Groups feature to share content with a select group of people, like family members, your soccer team or your book club.
  • Your “Newsfeed”
    • Things you share will appear as posts on your profile, and can appear in News Feed.
    • (To control whether or not specific people have the option to view your stories, you can change the privacy settings for each piece of content you post.)
    • Use the Privacy Settings on Facebook to control who can see what
    • Public Search Listing
  • Creating Lists
    • Lists help you “bifurcate” your messages.
    • Create lists to help you separate friends, family, business relationships, potential clients, etc.
    • By using lists combined with the privacy setting, you can separate business from personal
  • Tagging Photos
    • Take group shots and “tag” your friends, influencers, etc.
    • Use tagging to alert people to a great photo, upcoming event, “digital postcard” as a way to say “hi” and for FUN!
    • Your tagged photos of others will appear along the top of their Wall.
  • Starting The Conversation
    • Post about the things you find interesting in life
    • DON’T post your listing info
    • Share interesting links, pictures, etc.
    • Take interesting pictures and video
    • Be Unique, Be You!
    • Go to your friends walls and see what is going on in their lives.

    • Be helpful by offering recommendations and referrals
  • Gather New Friends
