The Love-Hate Relationship with Social Media: Maximize Opportunities Without Maximizing Risk
Duration: 93 minutes
Social media poses enough risk for the ordinary user, but corporations, attorneys and agencies face even greater peril. You can—and must—avoid tripping over an ethical snare when using social media tools. You cannot avoid social media altogether, and the rules of engagement are not clear-cut. For example, do you know how to advise clients about protecting evidence when using social media? Can you tell them how to avoid undermining their defenses? Do you understand how the ethical rules of social media use change when information is public vs. private? Can you “friend” a judge? Can you advertise for new clients using social media? How about tweeting during trial or Googling potential jurors?
