Twitter Cards | Now with Audioboo

It’s been discussed, over and over, the use of social media to further your brokerage’s success.  The social media outlets seem to be endless and popping up daily.  From Stumble Upon, reddit, del.icio.us, flickr, YouTube, Google+, etc.  Don’t forget the big boys, Facebook and Twitter.  Facebook has hosted company pages for a number of years and with over one billion people “liking and commenting” on Facebook an average of 3.2 billion times every day, the use of Facebook for business has had expediential growth.
