Facebook Listing Pages - Open Graph and RealBird integration

We just released the Facebook Open Graph integration with RealBird. This new feature enables you to create a Facebook Listing Page from your RealBird single property website and use it as a social media notification platform. When you have an open house to announce, just add it to this page and all the people on Facebook who liked your property will get notified instantly via their News Feed. Pretty neat, isn't it? You can use it for posting many different kind of updates and attach video, photos and links, just like with any other Facebook Page status updates.

Below are the simple steps you have to do to enable this feature on your RealBird account and to create a Facebook Listing Page for your listing. It takes literally less then a minute to set it up and then a second to create a Facebook Listing Page. 

  1. Login to RealBird or register here for free (free for up to 3 listings and only $99/year for more). 
  2. Connect your Facebook account with RealBird (takes only 5 seconds)
  3. Visit your own RealBird single property websites and click "Like" (takes 1 second)
  4. An "Admin Page" link will appear next to the Like widget at the footer area of your RealBird website, above the translation tools. Clicking that will take you to the automatically created Facebook Listing Page. It is also auto-populated with your main property photo, listing info and link to your property website on RealBird

Here are some screenshots showing the simple steps:

iPad sweepstake winner announced: Michael Layton of Palm Springs, CA

Our Apple iPad sweepstake ended on April 30, 2010. 167 of current RealBird members referred 701 new members via the RealBird Reward Program. Each referral registration counted as one reward point and one entry in the sweepstake. 

On April 30, we randomly selected a winner out of these 701 entries and the winner is Michael Layton of Palm Springs, CA. We are going to ship the brand new Apple iPad to him today and he will share a picture of himself with the iPad once he receives it. We will post the picture here on the blog.

Congrats to Michael and thanks for everybody who participated in this sweepstake. 

Soon, we will announce our new sweepstake so stay tuned. Good news is that the RealBird reward points do not expire. All 701 referrals will count as an entry in the upcoming sweepstakes and of course, the more new members you refer in the meantime, the higher chance you will have to win the next prize.

Thanks again !
