10 Powerful Tips to Increase Your Daily Narcissism on Facebook.

Maybe it was 10 Powerful Tips to Increase Your Chances of Not Having A Meaningful Life on Facebook.

Or 10 Powerful Tips to Increase Your Chances of Never Doing A Commercial Real Estate Deal on Facebook.

My personal favorite 10 Powerful Tips To Increase Your Chances of Never Making A Meaningful Connection on Facebook.

So, it’s easy to bash Facebook.

Way too easy. I started back in 2010 with Commercial Real Estate Turn Facebook Off.

I tried to warm up to it in 2012 with My Mom Is On Facebook. Which Is Awesome for Me……. but it didn’t work.

It’s now 2014 and the compelling reason to spend any time effort or $$$$ on Facebook is ZERO.

Hell, I’m wasting time just writing about how much time is wasted on Facebook.

But Duke………

Have you seen the numbers on Facebook? Kabillions of users in Kajiions of countries using it all the time?

Have you seen the demographics? Adults (they say adults but are they mentally) are the growing and trending users.

You can build your brand and “touch and connect” with potential (trust me my mom is not) customers.

You can get fans and likes. You write right, so you can reach other (do you think J.K. Rowling gives a shit) potential readers.

You can follow the fascinating and amazing super humans ( that only and I mean ONLY PITCH themselves their faces and their next “product ” for you to consume) known as celebrities. They “like” you back…..really. I mean they really do like you back.

But Duke my customers get the chance to see the “real” me. It’s the real me. Really in real life.

Duke, Facebook is me. Duke go check me out. LinkedIn is the “professional” me, don’t pay any attention to that.

Hey wait a minute you said somewhere once that Facebook was good for retail. It must have some value.

Embrace it…..or not!

Facebook is by my definition:

Narcissism (source)

“inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity. Synonyms: self-centeredness, smugness, egocentrism.”

But Duke Duke Duke you have your own site on which you write and post content all the time.

Is that not a narcissistic act?

Hmmmmm good question.

One thing I know for sure is that it’s not anything remotely close to posting on Facebook.

Don’t think so? Show me where the cat meme’s and snoopy is my life leader cartoons are on my site.

Oh and I do own MY site. I decide who what when where and how the content is presented. NOT Facebook.

Hey, I need to give them credit for making BILLIONS of $$$$$ off of your life.

Am I doing this just to shake my head in sorrow at the time and effort spent and wasted and also the sad ridiculiousness of Facebook?


I’m sorry.

I’m sorry that I mislead you with the headline.

I’m sorry that you clicked here to get some quick tips and “valuable advice” but got_________instead.

What I am not sorry for is my opinion about Facebook and commercial real estate.

  • You know Duke, when you started this focused attention Facebook I was skeptical. I have found that FaceBook is fine for family and friends but not for business. I don’t want to bore friends with business posts but I do want customers and prospects to see them. So I work harder with Twitter, LinkedIn and LinkedIn groups, G+ (though I am watching membership numbers and wavering in faith) . For me, Facebook is not relevant for business. Of course, I may be wrong but until I learn something about how I am missing something, that’s my take.

  • I actually clicked on the link shocked that you could find 10 reasons to be on Facebook. Thanks for not disappointing me. The truth is I stay on Facebook to connect with family and friends even still it is annoying. I think individual property communities can find great use on Facebook (my apartment one is great), but for CRE….no, thank you.
