Facebook just switched on a pretty cool feature that allows those who already have the Facebook plugin “like box” on their site to integrate a Facebook Messenger tab.

ShiftWare. This technology is potentially game changing (and I generally hate that term) for many industries, including real estate.
Imagine hanging a yard sign or perma-flyer, and being able to edit it right from your phone. Price change? No need for a new sign rider, just make the change in the app and it shows up instantly. Sounds crazy, right? Watch the video below to see it in action on the ShiftWare sneakers.
People wrap their cars with their branding… now you can digitally wrap your shoes too! I see a TON of potential with this technology.
Speaking of cars, if you spend a lot of time in yours like most of us in the real estate industry, you should check out the Open Road app. Open Road provides a unified driving experience for turn-by-turn navigation, music, calling, and more. Everything you need in the car. In one app.
