You said it Bob Crane if you have something to say and can do it professionally, fine. Otherwise it is a me too! Live stream open house, better watch your paint job dries!

It's relatively new and fun for those who are participating, and I imagine there is value if done well and correctly but who wants to be bombarded by tons of requests to view these. I don't, and I don't click

Frankly, this is going over the top with Facebook this, Facebok that. Live streaming an open house? How boring can it get. That's like the ones posting what they are having for lunch.... who cares?

Too much of a thing can lead to its demise.  I did watch a good and relatively short listing presentation training stream yesterday -- most are clicked off quite quickly.

I don't let social media notifications show on my phone. I'm very selective about what I view on any of those platforms. Otherwise it would be 24/7 and then some, mostly valueless.

I have actually gone in to every profile that does this and turned off the notification of live streaming.  Yet another FB "on by default" feature that pisses off their customers.  No way to ignore all by default.

Sorry I have been out of town for travel baseball:) 

I love to do facebook live streaming. The issue is there are still a lot of glitches in the platfrom. 

Gary V. just spoke at Inman and said he knows an agent who sold two of his listings through FB live streams during his open house - for the people who did not go to the open house. 

There are AMAZING business opportunities in FB live streaming! I think it is going to knock the socks off of Periscope! 

I need to write a post about all of this!
