Well I have been called many things before but never a circle with a lighting bolt running through it
I was on Facebook when a client called me on screen . She did not know how she did it and she laughed and said we could never do it again .
After we hung up I saw Alan May on line and I tried it . The call went through .He answered kind of puzzled and I introduced myself . I totally took him by surprise .
We instantly had so much fun . We talked and laughed, talked and laughed . We both learned something new .
Active Rain is so much fun . Even on Facebook our friendships grow stronger
The phone rang.... not an uncommon occurrence in the life of this Realtor. But the ring was a slightly different ring, and it wasn't clear who the caller was.
The symbol that showed was a circle with a lightning bolt inside. It looked somewhat familiar, but I wasn't sure.
"I'll bet", I thought "it's a telemarketer"
"Hello?" I answered, using my generic answer, instead of mentioning my name.
The voice at the other end was the ever-cheerful and energetic Hannah Williams... ecstatic with herself that the call had gone through and she'd reached me.
She had called using Facebook video-calling... (basically Facetime for Facebook) and while we had some technical difficulties... (She could see me just fine, but I couldn't see her), we had a lot of fun playing with this exciting new technology. (Well, at least new to us).
She gently admonished me for not commenting on her blog (something I've since remedied)... and we talked, and we talked, (and we talked)... a couple of dinosaurs playing with some new tech.
Fun. Thanks for introducing me to this new tech, Hannah.
