So Where Is Your Online Life Off To?

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty

Last week, Matthew Shadbolt of The Corcoran Group wrote a post about Curated Content and where our online content goes over time.

The simple answer is: it disappers. The article tracks content from various places on social media and found that over time the amount lessens and eventually evaporates. It's just too much to keep track of. We suspected that all along, didn't we? Or does this come as a surprise?

The real issue for posting, tweeting and pinning our content for business is that we can't count on it showing up forever. Thinkup is available to save our content. Blogs we know how to protect, but with all the other places we post content, this is something we can't ignore.

So where is your online life off to?

There is just less time to keep track of your items, and do the work you need to complete on a  daily basis. Thanks for the tip.

Frank and Sharon:

ThinkUp sounds interesting. I just went to their website but I need to do more investigating before I sign up.  Have you used it and what is your opinion?

Winston, it's not surprising, but it's not something that was on my To Do list for sure!

Evelyn, have not used it. It was in Matthew's post, so I included the link for people who wanted to check out such a service.

Frank & Sharon- I wasn't sure if it was hanging out in cyberspace or what but I'm going over to Thinkup to take a look.

Have never heard of "thinkup" before, so thank you for the coaching. I have leaned over the last 18 months that I began my blogging career, a post will continue to show up over and over. Folks contact me, indicating that they just read something that I did, months after it was created.

Kathy, it hangs for awhile, but then goes away - so much for the "it's there forever" premise that we have been told.

Joe, you're welcome. Wanted to share this with my AR friends :)

I thought everything we ever do online stays online forever? At least that's what we're told. Oh, well. I'll check out Thinkup to see what's it's all about.

I am curious to see if anyone knows more about this thinkup... I'll be back to check that part out.. and I do think that when you least want something to show up... that is when the "it's out there forever" can come back to you...

Interesting, Frank and Sharon.  I hate to admit it, but I hadn't given much thought to it.  I did take a look at Thinkup.  It looks promising.  I didn't realize you all cover St A.  My wife would love to move there.  I had even thought about sending a resume to Flagler College.  Love the area.

Just came by from Kathy's wrap up-and I too, did not really think about it.  I'm glad that it evaporates eventually-as a decorator and home stager , I HATE CLUTTER!

HI Frank and Sharon, thank you to Kathy for bringing this post to our attention. We are told that once you post online it is there forever. This is news to me. Thank you for the heads up.

Hi Frank and Sharon, good question that I really haven't thought of too much.  I guess I did think it just stayed out there hovering around forever. Now, after reading your post perhaps it would be good to revive our past now evaporated posts to bring them back into play so to speak.  Thanks for sharing
