To Friend or Not To Friend: Linkedin for Lawyers

Check out Part 2 of my weekly series on To Friend or Not To Friend: Social Media for Lawyers published on The Legal Intelligencer Blog. This week’s topic: Linkedin for Lawyers.

Here’s a quote from the article:

In answer to a question on Linkedin to the Legal Marketing Group, “How do you answer: To friend or not to friend, Janet Steinman, a New York lawyer said, “You are supposed to know the people who you ‘friend.’ It is completely appropriate to ask for introductions. If you do not know someone and do not have someone who could introduce you, send a message stating why you would like to connect with this person. Ask them to request a connection if they are interested.”

I look forward to your feedback and hope you will share this post with others. Stay tuned to The PR Lawyer and The Legal Intelligencer’s Lawyers and the Media blog.
