Brand New Facebook Feature Will Help You Gain More Credibility, Exposure, Business & Friends – All With Just One Symbol

Written on by Founder

new facebook taggingThis post is for all of you my real estate social media maniacs. 🙂

If you are on twitter that you probably know of a strategy called tagging.  Basically, you add the @ sign right at the beginning of someone’s profile name and your tweet will link back to their profile.  For instance, if you would want to tag me, you would write something like this: “@peterkolat” (minus the quotes).

This little feature works great for many reasons including driving traffic, getting more exposure, growing your followers, gaining credibility, trust and loyal following who will respond to your tweets.   I have several of my customers that keep retweeting my posts and tagging my name (I don’t tell them to do it).  You know who you are and I am very grateful for what you are doing.  Thank you!

Believe me, this strategy works great both for me and the people who tag my name. I end up interacting with them more often than usual.  I respond to them, to talk to them and help them out with any kinds of questions they might have.   All in all, the tagging feature can become extremely viral and help get yourself exposed around your market on the internet.

So use it to your advantage.

HERE’S THE BIG NEWS… (the real reason for my this blog post)

The almighty Facebook has just implemented the same feature in their updates.  They’ve been doing it for a while within Facebook notes, but now you can do it within your Facebook updates.  How does it work?

Basically, you start typing out your update and when you want to tag someone, you just type in the @ sign.  Looks familiar, doesn’t it?  So, if you would want to tag, let’s say me, you would type in @peterkolat (peterkolat is my profile name).

The good thing about Facebook’s @ tag feature is that when you start typing out someone’s name, Facebook will automatically suggest your friends to you if the letters you typed in are in their name.  Now, when your update goes live, each of your @someone’sname is a live link.  Then, when you click on their name, you are taken directly to their profile.

Talk about growing your Facebook friends, huh? 🙂

Now, start tagging each other boys and girls! 🙂

By the way, I’ll post an advanced real estate social media strategy that incorporates this tip.  So, if you are a SWAT Inner Circle member, then you should see a video of this powerful strategy very soon.  This one strategy can grow the number of your friends very fast.

As always, I would love to hear your comments below.  Let me know if you have any questions.

To Your Success,

Peter Kolat
