Good read.  I think one of the mistakes many attorneys and firms make is that they create Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn profiles, and blog pages on their websites, but they don't maintain them.  I think it's arguably worse to have an account that has not been updated in three years than no account at all. http://lawveritas.com

It is really interesting how American lawyers seem to be doing a lot more work in social medial than the lawyers in the UK. I am really surprised that Linkedin and Facebook are the top social media sites to use. The influence of social media over the years has become really big. I don't blame lawyers for trying to get a slice of this pie to help their careers out. If it works for them then they should stick with this form of advertising.

I think the chart you displayed is very interesting. It fascinates me to see how different lawyers utilize social media platforms. It really shows you what is effective for them! That is really cool to see.
