Don’t Be Spam

- People don't like spam.
- When you post one of your listings in an inappropriate way on social media, it is basically spam.
- When you spam people, you will get a negative response (if you get any response at all).
This seems like common sense, right? WRONG – and here's proof: I awoke this morning to discover that someone had posted a link to one of their listings on the wall of the RE Technology Facebook Page. Now, I'm not angry about this (although I promptly deleted the post). I can't really blame the agent for trying. But I did see the opportunity for a "teaching moment."
Here's the lesson. In this specific case, the main question is: "When is it inappropriate to post a listing on any Facebook Page other than my own?" Here are a few red flags.
