Linked In For Lawyers

November 22, 2009

LinkedIn has been on my radar again lately and I’m getting ready to dive in in a big way.  Since we all got ga-ga over Twitter, LinkedIn has lost its luster on the social media scene.

I believe there is still a lot of value on that platform for lawyers and I’m going to spend the next couple of weeks making that case.

For today, here is a simple video reminding you about the basic power of LinkedIn.

And this video comically demonstrates everybody’s fear about wasting their time on that platform.  If you like this video, here’s a companion video for Twitter.

Stick with me.  I’m going out on a limb here, promising something ahead of having all the content written, but I’ve done the research and I believe I can convince you that LinkedIn is a happening place for lawyers.

    I might be in the minority here, but I love LinkedIn. I recommend that legal professionals reluctant to use social media start with a LinkedIn profile and build their LinkedIn connections, not only through their colleagues and friends, but through LinkedIn’s professional groups. I’ve had several people contact me through LinkedIn to offer interesting professional opportunities, and it’s been a great help to me as a paralegal and a blogger. It’s a great place to dip your toe in the “social media pool” 🙂

      You are exactly right, Lynne! I think that LinkedIn is where the second stage adopters are just starting to get active and I think it’s going to be a more and more important place for legal professionals to start important social networking conversations. Between you and I, maybe we can pull some of our bleeding edge compatriots back for the evolving conversation. =-D
