Extract from Victoria Hudgins’ article “Lawyers Leveraging Less Social Media to Balance Ethics Rules, Time Constraints”
If you want to find a lawyer on social media, your best bet is on LinkedIn, according to multiple surveys. LinkedIn is currently popular in a profession that must weigh ethical rules and client confidentiality before every post, while ease of use is top of mind.
The American Bar Association’s recent Legal Technology Survey Report listed LinkedIn as the top social network leveraged by lawyers for professional purposes, at 90% of respondents. The 2019 LTN Tech Survey, meanwhile, reported 97% of respondents reported using LinkedIn, with a noticeable decline for other platforms.
