Quick to Listen, Slow to Tweet

I’ve noticed a recent trend of people using social network mediums such as facebook and Twitter to directly or passively attack someone they’ve been hurt or offended by or just simply disagree with. This could be directed to a person or an organization. Here are a few things I keep in mind when it comes to social media:

1. It’s instant: As soon as you hit the send, update or tweet button your post is instantly sent out. While you might be rolling your eyes at this fact, just remember you can’t pull it back once it’s sent.  There is no “retract” button.

2. It’s Global. Once you’ve posted you’re words go global. You only shared it with friends you say?  True…but who are they going to share it with? Make your words pass through a filter: “Do I want the world to read this?”

3. It’s Permanent. When it comes to the internet there is no such thing as something being deleted. We’ve seen this play out countless times with public figures that have fallen. Remember your words  can be  shared, retweeted, printed out, forwarded and quoted as your words go global.


Bottomline: Don’t post, tweet or send words when you’re angry or hurt. That’s a recipe for regret.

  1. Thanks for the something totally new you have disclosed in your short article. One thing I would like to discuss is that FSBO human relationships are built with time. By introducing yourself to owners the first saturday and sunday their FSBO is announced, prior to a masses start calling on Friday, you produce a good interconnection. By mailing them tools, educational components, free reviews, and forms, you become the ally. By taking a personal affinity for them in addition to their scenario, you generate a solid relationship that, on most occasions, pays off as soon as the owners opt with a broker they know plus trust — preferably you actually.

  2. Thanks for your posting. One other thing is when you are disposing your property yourself, one of the issues you need to be conscious of upfront is when to deal with home inspection records. As a FSBO seller, the key about successfully moving your property along with saving money on real estate agent commissions is awareness. The more you already know, the smoother your property sales effort are going to be. One area where by this is particularly important is inspection reports.
