It's Negligent Misrepresentation Under F.S.475. 25 (1)(b) For Brokers To Imply In Marketing Materials That Their Agents Are Skilled At Using Social Media To Sell Properties, But Have No Proof They Were Trained On The New Social Media Social Media Speech Laws.
Brokers Have Two Simple Options...

  • Comply with the new federal training standards by giving your agents expert training on the new social media speech laws.

  • Lose your license, your real estate business, your reputation, and your personal fiances in a nasty social media related lawsuit.

An agent's post or tweet can destroy a person's reputation worldwide. The need to give your agents expert social media liability training is obvious. Brokers will be sued for negligence if they don't give their agents expert liability training.

In A Lawsuit, Plaintiff Attorneys Validate Your Agent's Knowledge Of Social Media Law By Asking Basic Questions...
When your agents claim they are trained on using social media to sell properties, clients assume as part of that training, they learned about social media legal issues. If that's not the case, then brokers need to state that fact in their marketing materials and client contracts.

3 "Know It All" Attitudes That Delay My Expert Training And Trigger Lawsuits That Destroy Your Business...
1) : Our attorney attended a few conferences and did some research. So why pay for an outside social media attorney specialist when our own attorney has the same level of expertise.

2) Our agents don't need expert training on the new social media speech laws, we are just use good common sense and are very careful.

3) All our money goes into social media marketing to generate listings and sell properties. We gave out warnings and policies, that's enough.
"Mark's course is a tremendously important and timely presentation of
new information regarding new major social media risks to realtors."

E&O Insurance Isn't A Substitute For
Expert Social Media Liability Training
Most social media legal damages are adjudicated as intentional or malicious, not accidental. Insurance excludes claims that have been adjudicated by a court or other authoritative body as intentional or malicious. Even if the claim is covered, your premium will go through the roof. My online course is much cheaper.
"Mark, your information was like purchasing a
one million dollar insurance policy."

Legal Authority : Under Florida law, the real estate agents' statutory obligations include a duty of honesty and fair dealing, a duty to disclose all known facts that materially affect the value of the property and are not readily observable, and a duty not to make misleading, deceptive, or fraudulent representations in any transaction. See §§ 455.227(1)(a), 475.25(1)(b), 475.278(4)(a)1.-2., 475.42(1)(e), (1)(n), Fla. Stat. (2012); see also Zichlin v. Dill, 25 So. 2d 4 (Fla. 1946) (reversing dismissal of suit against real estate broker for defrauding buyer and rejecting argument that broker owed no duty to deal fairly with the buyer); Fla. Att'y Gen. Op. 96-20 (1996) (explaining that "Chapters 455 and 475, Florida Statutes, clearly make misrepresentation, concealment, and fraud by real estate brokers and salespersons contrary to the public policy of this state" and opining that any language in a real estate sales contract that purports to relieve the broker or salesperson of liability for fraud, misrepresentation, or other wrongdoing is void as contrary to public policy).
Plaintiff Attorneys Prove That Brokers Knew Or Should Have Known That Millennials Are Vulnerable
To Making Costly Social Media Mistakes...
students_portrait.jpg
Millennials were raised on the false notion that the Internet and social media are "Free Speech Zones" with no legal consequences. It's not a defense to say even with training they will make mistakes. As long as brokers can prove they provided specialized social media liability training, their liability is mitigated.

Milennials and older agents learn new skills to engage in social media marketing without exposing the broker to costly liability.

You May Not Care About Social Media Liability Training For Agents, But The Courts Do...
Man acting as a witness pointing out someone to the judge
When an agent makes a social media mistake, clients point the finger at brokers for misrepresentation of their agents qualifications to use social media without liability.

Social Media Is Not A Free Marketing Toy Box For Brokers. Without Proof Of Expert Agent Liability Training, It Can Become A Legal Nightmare...
Normally, powerful broadcasting mediums were once reserved for major news outlets that had an army of attorneys and editors who monitored a broadcaster's content. Also, many of the broadcasters were trained journalists who took in-depth college media classes. Fast forward to today, and you have powerful broadcasting platforms on personal devices in the hands of untrained employees with no oversight. Courts expect the brokers to fill that knowledge gap with specialized social media law training.
You Have A Simple Choice: Give Clients
The 3 Legal Documents Below Or Stop Using Social Media To Generate Listings and Sell Properties...
  • A training certificate showing the agent completed specialized social media liability training by a social media attorney specialist, not a general attorney giving out warnings to agents.

  • Clients must receive an airtight social media policy that meets the new federal standards on social media policy drafting.

  • Clients must be issued a clearly written social media disclaimer that includes the proper indemnification clauses.

Mitigates The Risk Both For Brokers And Agents
