Facebook Reveals What Canadian Real Estate Agents Are Into
According to Facebook’s search engine Graph Search almost 100,000 Canadian real estate agents may like US political figures more than they like their own. The president of the United States, Barack Obama, won more Facebook “likes” from Canadian agents than any Canadian politician.
A few days ago we published a cool infographic in which we showed what US real estate agents are into on Facebook — in short, The Facebook Profile of a Real Estate Agent. But now, at your suggestion, we would like to show you how the Canadian version of the infographic would look.
So, with no further ado, here are the results for all 12 categories. What likes do you share from this list?
Top 5 Political Figures
Who comes after Barack Obama? Well, it’s a tough call as we have a gender divide.
