Social Networking: Friend or Foe?

Vol. 39 No. 5


The ABA’s Legal Technology Resource Center reports that 56 percent of lawyers currently maintain a presence on at least one social networking site. As a law student, up until now, you may have used LinkedIn for your professional profile and Facebook or other sites mainly as a way to have fun and connect with friends. But because lawyers are now using social networking as a professional tool, you need to start thinking about how to use social networking sites to enhance, rather than detract from, your own professional persona. This means you need to understand how other lawyers are using social networking, so you can respond appropriately.
