There are a lot of social media sites, forums, blogs, networking sites, etc. I have tried many, most in fact, and with mixed results. One in particular I believe is mandatory and is dedicated to investing in real estate and helping investors succeed. That site is BiggerPockets.com. If you are a real estate investor and are not on BiggerPockets.com you should sign up immediately.
What is BiggerPockets.com
BiggerPockets.com is a network for real estate investors to learn and share knowledge, network, do deals, etc. You have a profile, friends, you can follow people, create niche groups, post articles and blog posts, comment and discuss, post and find events, sell and inquire about deals, find partners and find just about whatever it is you need to succeed in real estate. The beauty is that the members are such a high concentration of investors.

You can find just about every topic out there. If you like what you see, befriend and follow an author and network away. Also write your own articles and blogs and comment and discuss.
BiggerPockets.com has the most helpful and comprehensive resources section I have seen on the web. They obviously care about the members success and must really enjoy the reward because the resource section is amazing. Check it out and see for yourself.
Find events to attend in person, webinars, etc. and post your own. You can also find deals, market your properties and create relationships with fellow investors.
Above is a quick overview of the features on BiggerPockets.com which are tremendous. What makes the site great is the members and those members using the great features. No site out there have I found a higher concentration of investors more willing to help each other succeed.
