Lawyers and social media

Technology2There was an interesting article on Mashable yesterday titled ‘How Lawyers May Use Social Media in the Future‘.

The article highlights the tension between the open and uninhibited nature of social media and a cautious and risk-averse legal profession.

Among other things, the article contains an interesting, but brief, discussion of the use of social media as evidence, a matter that should be a strong developing area of interest to all legal professionals, and the growing importance of using social media to establish brand identity.
