Agents: Stop asking for technology help on social media

Free advice can be pretty expensive if you're not careful
  • If something breaks and it cannot be repaired, I won’t mention it on Facebook. There's no technology standard across the real estate space, and not every solution works everywhere.
  • I have seen big, ugly problems that can bring a business to its knees -- and most are created by people using systems they don’t understand that are cheap or free.
  • When I can't find an answer to my problem on Google, I have paid and I will pay for technical support.

I can totally understand why someone would want to see what a peer in the industry thinks about or an idea, a challenge selling a house or even a company logo, but should a real estate professional be relying on peers for technical support through Facebook groups?
