Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington - we build the relations here and that should be good everywhere else, isn't it?

Even if they are not here in 'Rain does not mean the relationship was just limited to ActiveRain.

just my two cents.

I just don't spend much time on Facebook, Twitter or others, so I will only leave a comment when I happen to be there. My main "social media" is Activerain. Facebook is too personal for me; I don't need the world to know what I had for dinner. The others? I don't even know who my followers are and are and I doubt if they know who I am. Hey, but I could be wrong. I have AR linked on my websites as my official blog, so that makes sense to me. If you leave AR, well, that's your choice. I have no personal feelings about that.
