Profitable Social Media TECH TIP - Organize Facebook with Lists

Organizing your Friends and Managing Your Time with Lists

Lists are a great way to organize your friends on Facebook and can be helpful in controlling the type of content you share with different groups of people. For example, there may be certain status updates or photos you only want to share with family or close friends, but not co-workers or clients. Creating a list will allow you to share content with   specific groups of people.

As a real estate agent, you can utilize lists as an efficient way to manage your time and efforts on Facebook. For example, create a list with a targeted group of friends who are likely to be buying a home within the next year or so. This can include friends who are recently engaged or married (or have children who are recently engaged or married), recently separated or divorced, having a new baby, etc.  Give the list a name like “VIP’s” or “SOI”. This list will help you narrow your efforts to just this targeted group of friends where you can be sure to utilize your time on Facebook to engage in their conversations and share postings with just that group.
