Many of my clients and contacts are interested in learning how Social Media can assist with home sales. It’s a question that comes with a lot of preconceived notions about social technologies—i.e. that they are only used to update friends with what you had for breakfast—as well as some deep-seated fears of transparency and the potential for negative feedback.
