Facebook is the world’s largest photo sharing and video sharing service. Many businesses large and small already have a Facebook page or shares videos on YouTube. The process is not only fast and easy but free. An example might be a real estate broker that sends a postcard to either a targeted neighborhood or to their own prospect list and includes a QR Code on the postcard. The recipient could scan the QR code and be taken to a Facebook page where the user could view photos of a house or a video tour with a shared video and then could post comments back for friends and family to review. Of course the agent could also connect back to their own website and home tours.
