The Dark Side of Facebook

While I have found a ton of great benefits in using Facebook (connecting with people and leveraging influence), I have also found a few negatives to these Social Networking sites (Facebook, Twitter…etc.). Here are 3 Key Thoughts:

1. Self-expression overload: This generation highly values self-expression. Everyone seems to desire to have some type of artistic expression and universities are reporting exponential increase in communication majors. With that being said, do you think there is such a thing as too much disclosure? Is it dysfunctional to share EVERYTHING with EVERYONE?

2. Friendships Vs. Acquaintances: Here’s the deal we don’t really have 657 “friends”. Most of them are people we just know. A facebook friend is not always the same as an authentic relationship. Keep a good perspective on having quality over quantity in relationships. You don’t want to wake up one day and realize all your relationships are just surface depth.

3. Time Thief: When I first got on to facebook I spent a TON of time online. My family and work paid the price. Saying yes to being online means saying no to: someone else, your work, valued projects that you want to get done and much more. I think it’s a great tool, but not at the cost of friends, family and that of your legacy paying the price.

Bottom Line: Don’t let your desire to express and connect online overwhelm your desire to connect and express in person.

Are we still friends?

  2. I have observed that over the course of developing a relationship with real estate entrepreneurs, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in every real estate financial transaction, a commission amount is paid. In the long run, FSBO sellers will not “save” the commission payment. Rather, they try to win the commission simply by doing a strong agent’s job. In accomplishing this, they invest their money along with time to carry out, as best they’re able to, the assignments of an adviser. Those tasks include revealing the home through marketing, presenting the home to willing buyers, making a sense of buyer urgency in order to make prompt an offer, organizing home inspections, managing qualification assessments with the lender, supervising maintenance tasks, and facilitating the closing of the deal.

  3. Thanks for your content. One other thing is when you are selling your property on your own, one of the troubles you need to be alert to upfront is when to deal with house inspection reviews. As a FSBO seller, the key concerning successfully shifting your property and also saving money on real estate agent revenue is knowledge. The more you recognize, the simpler your home sales effort will probably be. One area exactly where this is particularly vital is assessments.
