Today NAR announced who their Social Media Manager is, Todd Carpenter .  Congratulations to both Todd and NAR!
 
This is a huge step in the right direction for NAR  (National Association of Realtors) in joining in on the Web 2.0 conversation with home buying and home selling consumers, and the real estate industry.  Being in the conversation is the first step to, hopefully help NAR to gain more credibility.  Of course just joining is not enough, NAR will need to become more aware of the changes happening and be willing not only to listen, but to take positive action in response to what is being said.
 
Okay, now I am going to pat myself (nice job Deb!) on the back for my teeny, tiny part in nudging NAR, by sending you to Jay Thompsons' NAR Wisdom blog "Why the NAR Needs a Social Media Director " and this guest post "I Completed My Homework " by NAR CEO Dale Stinton thanking me (Deborah Burns, Seattle Real Estate Agent!)  for recommending the book "The New Influencers " by Paul Gillin.
 
If you want to see my outline of how this happened, see my previous post below...."Outlining the Wonderful, Weird Way Web 2.0 Works"
