This week has seen the debate over social media’s role for companies take centre stage. Mark Alexander’s article arguing that it’s too easy for social media to sway public opinion has provoked nearly 100 comments already and the figure is rising.

Mary Latham also sheds some more light on the deposit changes, The Property Maverick returns to offer advice on analysing your portfolio and there’s a feature on BMVwarehouse.

I have read many blogs from various contributors and find all make sense but mostly are stating the obvious. Most portfolio landlords are aware of whats happening and keep up to date with aspects which affect their business, please can we have interesting blogs from people and not individuals wishing to be published.
