Do you use Facebook? Do your clients use Facebook?
Then you all need to learn to be very careful what you share.
Many a job has been lost because a prospective employer checked the applicant on Facebook – and found things they didn’t like. For instance, party photos and negative comments about past or current employers.
And… many a buyer or seller has suddenly found “the other side” unwilling to negotiate because they blabbed about their business on Facebook. If you write your “friends” on Facebook and tell them that you’ve made an offer, but are willing to pay full price, why should the seller come down?
If you’re selling a house and you’re so desperate that you’ll take almost any offer, why should a buyer offer full price?
Don’t think that the people on the other side and/or their agent isn’t going to be online looking for information you’ve posted. They will be.
Of course, Facebook has been known to cause other damage as well.
Take, for instance, the people who came home from vacation to find their home robbed and vandalized. Their children had been posting all about their vacation and telling their friends how long the family would be away from home.
