Curation Policy

Here at RealEstateAgent.Social we take curation seriously.

The internet was built and founded on linking, sharing, and recommending great stories from other sources on the web.
Curation, to us, means finding interesting, well-written, and highly appropriate articles, videos and images for our readers.

By choosing an article/image/video from your site, we are giving it our vote of approval. This not only means that we enjoy your article/image/video, we also give it our highest recommendation, and we direct our readers … in every case … to view your article/image/video on your website.

Our curation is designed to send our readers to your site and your articles.

We curated your article/image/video because it was outstanding in some way.

If, for any reason, you wish us not to use your article/image/video, simply contact us, and request your story be taken down.

We will immediately and without exception comply with your takedown request, and put you on our list to never use again.

99% of emails we get about curation are from publishers and authors who are delighted to receive additional exposure and readership for their stories as a result of our curation.

Most online publishers recognize the value of having their stories, articles/image/video

  • shared
  • viewed
  • quoted
  • commented on
  • debated
  • discussed
  • linked to
  • new readers encouraged to the articles/image/video

Social sharing of online content only extends the reach, impact, and ultimately the effectiveness and profitability of the original publisher’s content.

We are using your content to inform our visitors, and to point then to the original source of the content.

To be frank … we want our readers to discover and visit your content, and your website.

We Want You To Be Pleased We Found Your Content

Standards, practices, and legal decisions about “Fair Use” are still evolving online. Our standards are higher than the merely legal.

We hold ourselves to much higher standards than “Fair Use.”
We want “Delighted Use.”

If you are not delighted to be used and linked to by our site, just let us know. We will take action immediately.

We use your stories the way we hope others will curate our content.

Specifically, if you like a story on our site, we are pleased and gratified.

Please feel free to use it as generously as you wish. In return please just give us clear credit, links back to the article/image/video, and some encouragement for interested readers to visit the original content. Take as much of our content as you think will inform and entertain your readers. Just link, credit, and encourage the reader to visit the original site.

That is what we do.
That is what built the internet.
That is what social sharing is about.
Everyone benefits when sharing is done respectfully and honestly.

Here is what we will never do.

  • We never re-publish without full credit and links back to the original source.
  • We never republish an RSS feed verbatim.
  • We never use content without the intention of sending you more traffic.

Most Importantly…

Sharing and curation standards are still evolving online. Our standards of delight may very well differ from yours.

If you want us to be even more generous with links and credit let us know. If you feel your story has had too much use, let us know.

We will fix it to your standards instantly.
