Facebook shuts down REALTOR referral page over Vanity URL issue

With all the “experts” in social media, it’s really easy to take what an “expert ” says to the bank.  But be careful.  Just because your best friends, sisters-cousin says that so and so is an expert in social media doesn’t make it so.

3 weeks ago I went to a seminar here in Mesa, AZ by the latest “flavor of the month-social media experts” that said in a room of over 100 people, (80 of which being small business owners) .……”you don’t need a website anymore, Facebook is all you need”.  I personally think that this gentleman gave some horrible advice to the attendees.

Why?  Great question!

1) I don’t know about you, but I have never actually seen a Facebook fan page  (business page) indexed on the 1st or even second page of a Google search.  Have you? Not really a good idea when we have already established that over 90% of buyers go to the internet when looking for real estate. (Keywords….)

2) Read this!

Facebook Shuts Down Page with over 47,000 Fans over Vanity URL

Note to self: Don’t under any circumstances rely on one business source for business.  Especially if its something like Facebook. Why?  Because you don’t own Facebook.  If they change their terms of service tomorrow and you rely only on Facebook for business… are effectively shut down! As this gentleman learned first hand.
