Mary,

When Social Media came about, we were on 10 real estate related sites. 2 have survived, Active Rain and another.  In my opinion, the other one has gone off the deep end.  This is a place where you can real conversation make friends and do business.  A

Yes Mary Hamilton , AR is unique though I think it is changeable - the people, the topics, the Q & A, the Blogs, the Contests, and the Replies and Comments.  There is much to learn from here, and ARer's are very willing to share and to be professional, as well as to have a sense of humor.  It's not my favorite site - it's my only site.  What is unchangeable are the business relationships, and the friendships you can make on this site, if you are interested in doing so.

Lab Coat Agents on facebook is interesting, but not to the caliber of Active Rain (although I've seen a few of our members there).  I'm on there a couple times a month, AR I'm on daily.  That should tell you something.

There are quite a few other real estate forums around - I've been a member on many of them

Problem is, they do not have the same quality of agents and often flame wars abound

I prefer here for agent interaction myself
