Soci@l - The Intro...

By
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

In the Intro to the ebook 'Soci@l: Attract Friends, Followers and Connections to Your Business' there is a mention of NameChk.com 

Namchk

Good tool...

Reading The Intro to Soci@l I did get sucked into using NameChk.com to see which networks I am MaureenMcCabe and which networks  other Maureen McCabes beat me to the name. I am not the only Maureen McCabe in the world. I share the name with a bunch of people.

I am MaureenMcCabe  and you are not...

I own MaureenMcCabe.com I have since the late 1990's?  Maybe longer.  Maybe less.

I am not the only Maureen McCabe in real estate, there is a Maureen McCabe in Florida.  Orlando I believe...

There is a very talented and interesting artist named Maureen McCabe on the east coast.

There is a financial advisor named Maureen McCabe in Milwaukee.  One of her clients emailed me some stuff recently.

I am MaureenMcCabe on Facebook... I stayed up and grabbed MaureenMcCabe last year when we could have vanity urls.  People can find the other MaureenMcCabes on Facebook but I got the URL... (as Renee Burrows would say "neener neener." )  I really was not active on Facebook at the time I grabbed that url.  I really did not know my .... from a hole in the ground, I could not tell a page from a profile.  Then there are groups?  I am still trying to catch up on Facebook.

I had  @MaureenMcCabe on Twitter but when someone said "Oh I did not know you were in Columbus" I changed it to @MoInColumbusOH.   I am not sure HOW I feel about that....  one of my good friends, real life friends joined Twitter...  he is following @MaureenMcCabe and I keep trying to get his attention with @MoInColumbusOh  I am following him.  I am #FFing  his @username  I am waving my hands in the air....

MoInColumbusOH following Ericsellshomes on Twitter

I often go to join a network and find I have already joined.  Do I feel compelled to use them all?  No.   Technorati... Digg... StumbleUpon... I am on many of them.  Some I am a longtime member but I often need to recover the account and password.  I was completely clueless when I joined a lot of them in 2005, 2006, 2007...

How can you use NameChk.com ? Look for your name or a handle you would be comfortable using and see if it is in use.  "Reserve" it on some of the networks. 

Read Soci@l.  You can download it for free in the link below.  Soci@l starts out in "The Intro" with things to do like grabbing your name on networks.   Don't know what to do with 'em?  Don't worry if you need to know in the future, you can find out.

I was surprised also to see how many others had my same name, one is an attorney, the other is a socialite in France etc, To date I am the only real estate broker.

Lorraine or Loretta the socialite in France is interesting. 

I forgot I have a nun too.  Book of Psalms shows up sometimes for Maureen McCabe and she is Sister Maureen McCabe?  Or is she sometimes Sister Ann Maureen McCabe.  Sometimes I think there may be more than one nun with my name.

Dawn There are 149 networks on Namechk.com craZy!!!!!

Ooops I have two FourSquare accounts.  I kind of knew that.   I just looked at what accounts are MoInColumbusOH and I think I have made a mess on more than one site...  My friends are all on one ID... my badges (just a few) are on another...

I felt bad each time Foursquare told me I had no friends....
