June 30th, 2012 is Social Media Day around the world, a day to celebrate social media. There are meetup groups from San Francisco to Hong Kong, Moscow to Rio de Janeiro getting together today to discuss, use and revel in all things social media.
Social Media Day was created by the website Mashable.com, the “leading source of news, information and resources for the Connected Generation (mashable.com).”
So, in the spirit of today we wanted to make sure that REALTORS®, home buyers and home owners are adequately prepared for their active lives with the apps that will help them, buy or sell a home, renovate, calculate, measure, and do all things home related.
