social media and law firms

Aug 24th, 2009 | Posted by | Filed under Indianapolis IT support, Online Marketing

In a follow-up to some of our tweets on social media restrictions on law firms I thought it made sense to post some notes on our blog.  What types of policies do you see at your business and more specifically Indianapolis metro are law firms, regarding social media?  Not only professional policies but are restrictions made on what you may post to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and blogs from a personal account?

Oddly, the recession has driven some new restrictions and also offered more incentive to follow those policies on social networking sites.  Law firms are increasingly competing for fewer resources from clients and cannot afford a public relations flap to hinder their prospects.  Additionally, attorneys and other legal professionals find it is not a good time to test their firm’s policy on social media posts and profiles.

We’ve seen a large number of businesses without any such policy or restrictions on social media sites, but more and more Indianapolis businesses are finding it necessary to address the issue before an incident arises.

What is your company’s stance on social media sites?
