Texas Real Estate magazine almost as good as Facebook

I read a statistic the other day that absolutely stunned me. Facebook, the originally collegiate social network site founded by Mark Zuckerberg serves almost 54 billion pages each month and its users stay, on average, 14 minutes on the site.

Facebook recently made the news when Microsoft bought a 1.6 percent share in it for a whopping $240 million. Texas Real Estate magazine has only just recently added a forum to its website so we are not yet a social networking site though we are a growing community of like-minded people interested in sharing experiences, tips and advice relating to buying land in Texas, Texas lakefront properties and prime Texas Real Estate.

That’s all good but what astounded me is that the average time a Texas Real Estate magazine spends on the website is ten minutes, just four minutes below Facebook which is fanatical in the way its users use it and how long they spend there, which leads me to believe that either online social networking sites are inhabited by people with incredibly short attention spans (always a possibility) or that Texas Real Estate magazine visitors are people who are incredibly focused at unearthing the correct information for the property they are looking for in Texas or finding the right Texas lake property or Texas land, for them.

Facebook, extrapolated from the 1.6 per cent value purchased by Microsoft is now worth, on paper at least, a staggering $15 billion. Texas Real Estate magazine is not worth $15 billion yet but in terms of what the website can deliver to anyone looking for information on Texas land, Texas Land Deeds, Severance of Estate in Texas, a West Texas lake property (or a Texas lake property come to that) or some quality, Texas recreational property, it’s worth its weight in gold (so to speak)!
