Will landlords use social media to communicate?

by Grainne Burns23 May 2014

A new social network for condo dwellers may bring a sense of community to a building but will landlords embrace the tool to communicate with tenants?

A happy dwelling makes for a happy long-term tenant. But is social media the means to achieve that sense of happiness, community and calm.

The creator behind a new mobile platform does. bazinga! is the brainchild of Joseph Nakhla, a Vancouver resident. He designed the network to help neighbours connect with one another and local resources.

“Most importantly, we provide a platform for social interaction between residents,” says Nakhla. “Residents can start group conversations, organize meetings or building events, and even arrange a group discount on building work, we have even seen people arrange tutor sessions. This is how bazinga! creates communities.”

Over 80,000 users have signed up to the database, with residents using it as a service to book amenities, organize social outings and share decorating ideas. They can also use it to lobby for local issues or talk about problems in their buildings.

Landlords and property managers are also being encouraged to use the tool to upload condo board meeting notes or any issues that may arise.
