Social media is a great new tool—we are bombarded with messages about the benefits for us as lawyers in credentialing and marketing ourselves, and educating the public with our blogs on legal issues. Many lawyers and judges use it successfully. Of course, it’s so easy to use these tools that we sometimes don’t remember that we can also make missteps. Also, our clients use (misuse) their accounts to talk about us. And when we or others do, social media is also there to show the resulting gaffe to (potentially) thousands if not millions of people.
