I spent two days this week at the Inman real estate technology conference in San Francisco. The biggest buzz was about blogs and social networks as the next big thing in real estate. Being both a pack animal and a geek, I had to rush right out and start fooling around with this new technology.
I’m sure the real estate uses of social networking are going to take off fast. Sites like MySpace and FaceBook connect and inform today’s users in powerful ways… So don’t be surprised if you start getting real estate updates on your iphone and social networks soon. The most talked about site at the conference was Active Rain. They are an interesting mix of professional and conusmer real estate information. Another popular site is Technorati, a blog rating service. Check My Technorati Profile on their site.
