LEGAL Q&A | Can I advertise another firm’s property on social media?

QUESTION: My BIC informed me today that she received a complaint from another firm. The other firm was upset that I re-posted one of their properties on my social media, even though I specifically gave credit to the listing firm in capital letters in my post. I recently toured the property with a client, and I was just trying to show potential prospects the kind of gorgeous properties I had been in recently. Did my post violate the Code of Ethics? How is my post different than using the Internet Data Exchange (IDX) from my MLS?
