Are You Using Social Media?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Waikoloa Vacation Rentals

As social media is becoming more and more of a trend I keep finding myself feeling like I need to partake in it.  In early 2009 I started a twitter account and just could not make sense of it.  Everything I wanted to say that was related to business could not be said in the few amount of words they allowed you to tweet.

Just recently I started a Facebook business page.  I was very happy with the functionality and simplicity of using it.  Then it came time to get fans and start promoting it.  Once I got to this step I figured it out that it is really going to be hard to use facebook to promote your business.  Even if someone is a fan, it is not like another profile where your posts will show up on their wall.  Your posts show up only on their most recent news feed, which I typically do not use so I figured others must not either.

I was interested to see who uses Facebook and if you have more sucess promoting your business with a profile or a page.  I assume since Facebook is well established that they have a reason for businesses to be on pages rather than profiles, but I am just having a hard time figuring out the benefit.

I have a Facebook page; however, I rarely visit or post there.  ActiveRain is more fun, interesting and enlightening.
