Facebook Adds the Like Button

Facebook made a small but important change to Fan Pages but changing the Become a Fan button to a Like button. The change was made to reflect the true nature of the relationship between Fan Pages and Likers. It’s a small change but it should increase the number of Fans / Likers as becoming a Fan made some people feel like stalkers. You can see the new Like Button right here.

MetCalfe’s Law and Real Estate Social Media Marketing

Metcalfe’s Law explains why social networks are so viral and grow so exponentially. If you grasp the concept you can use it every day to power your real estate social media marketing.

In simple terms Metcalfe says that if you have 1 friend this represents 1 connection. If you have 5 friends this represents 10 connections and if you have 12 friends this represents 66 connections. Do you see the exponential growth in connections as you add friends?

Here’s a more scientific explanation  – Metcalfe’s law states that the value of a telecommunications network is proportional to the square of the number of connected users of the system (n2).

In short Metcalfe says “Go send out more friend requests on Facebook already!”

The great news is that Facebook and the other social networks are incredibly viral and you can simply piggyback on their network to virally expand your own personal network. In the Facebook Economy you can reach and connect with so many more people than in the “old days” of door-to-door or tele-canvassing.

Facebook is the New Coffee Shop!

In 2004 the 22 year old founder of Facebook famously turned down a $1 Billion offer for Facebook. That’s right – a 22 year old kid said thanks but no thanks to a billion dollars.

Nuts!

Turns out he was right. He’s now worth $2 billion plus and he presides over a social network that has over 350 million users and shows no sign of slowing down.

(In case you’re wondering, his name is Mark Zuckerberg.)

The most impressive thing about Facebook is not just its size. What’s just as impressive is Continue reading “Facebook is the New Coffee Shop!”
