Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: The Word is Out- ActiveRain shows up on Supra's Survey

The Word is Out- ActiveRain shows up on Supra's Survey

Apparantly, the word is out on how addictive ActiveRain is.  My local association (MetroTex Association of Realtors) sent their weekly email yesterday, and within the email was a link to take a survey from GE's Supra to help them design a new lockbox. 

One of the questions was:

9. What software applications are of interest to you on a smartphone?

Sales Management Software
MLS dataActiveRain real estate agent network
Listing management
Games
Personal productivity
Driving directions
Real Estate Social Networking (e.g. Activerain, Trulia, etc.)

Other (please specify)

I did not mark that answer as I don't use my Treo for blogging and can't see myself using it for blogging in the future because the keys are too small and my mind goes faster than my fingers can press those tiny buttons, but I found it interesting that they're thinking of making this available because they think many people are that addicted to the site to need to blog to and from appointments.

I know ActiveRain is known to the almost 83,000 members that have joined, but with NAR having a membership of over a million, I thought it odd that it would be part of a survey like this with such a small percentage of Realtors knowing about it.  I'm sure there are many people who are taking the survey wondering what the heck ActiveRain is.

Congrats, ActiveRain, for making it as an example in a survey!

That is interesting. You know in Japan that novels are typed on smartphones. Some of these works are now being published in English. Most of these novelist are young women, so why should you not type a blog on the go? Reporting from the scene, as it were.

Donna, I wonder how many will join because they saw the name in the survey - pretty cool.

Pam, I'm hooked too, but not with tiny buttons.  These prenatal (post natal) vitamins I take make my nails too long to handle.

Courtney, Very true.

Michael, It's not just "people" it's research companies.

John, I agree.

Katharine, Brain-Fry!

Frank, I could never write a novel on this phone.  I get annoyed when I have to email someone more than 1 sentence on my phone.  Brain just works too fast compared to the fingers.  I would lose my thoughts.

Jo, I know!  I wish I could enter my invite code into their survey!

It seems so. I too am a Supra Key holder. The survey must have been sent out to all Supra key holders nationwide.

I think they realize the power of the rain and that eventually as it catches on it will over take NAR's site!
