The newest trend in Boston real estate appears to be the use of social media tools like Facebook and Twitter to sell homes.

Social media are online venues through which people can share information and interact using network sites such as Digg, Flickr and Mybloglog.

The number of real estate agents who write blogs doubled this year from 4% to 8% and 13% said they plan to start a blog, according to a survey by the National Association of Realtors. Other surveys have 10% of brokers using blogs.

Do you think social media sites used by real estate agents for marketing is just a passing fad? Will it replace local newspaper ads?
