To Friend or Not to Friend – Social Media for Lawyers

On the Legal Intelligencer Blog, Attorney Gina F. Rubel of Furia Rubel Communications, Inc. is posting a series of articles devoted to social networking for attorneys. She writes:
As an avid user of social media platforms such as Linkedin, Facebook, YouTube, Plaxo, Flickr and others, one of the questions I face regularly is “to friend or not to friend?” In some instances you will see a name of someone you “know” in the friend finder and you ask yourself, “Is this someone I want to connect to?” At other times you will receive a friend request and have to decide if you want to connect with that person in a public forum.
According to the post, future blog articles will address the ins and outs of different social media tools such as Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube and will include info on social media platforms that can be used in a professional manner to communicate who you are and what you do.  Jump to the blog.
