Do you still QR Codes are for techies? Do you think they will go the way of the Dodo? The jury may still be deliberating.

You will love this article about how to spread the word, whatever that may be ( but let’s say real estate) it was written by James Fowler, an internationally recognized political scientist who specializes in the study of social networks, human cooperation, and political participation. Brilliant!

Think Twitter is just for sending out messages? Think again. This post is not related to real estate in anyway…..unless you are selling a house in Argentina with a Smart Car in the garage.
