Format: Paperback
The book is a comprehensive guide to help lawyers and other legal professionals understand the impact social media has had on the way consumers and in-house counsel find and select lawyers to solve their legal problems. The book is informal, written in clear and easy-to-understand language, and is chock full of illustrations and details.
Carolyn and Niki describe "a goal-centric approach to social media," which enables lawyers to "(1) identify the social media platforms and tools that fit their practices and (2) implement them easily, efficiently, and ethically."
The book suggests that lawyers must grasp three important themes in order effectively use social media: 1) Social media is not going away and will continue to grow and gain acceptance amongst all age groups; 2)Social media is a tool for achieving your goals, not a goal itself; and 3) Social media does not change your ethical obligations.
The authors recognize that social media for lawyers and legal professionals can be overwhelming and, after an historic overview and discussion about the current trends, help you create a practical strategy to using social media to accomplish your goals, including best practices, proper net-iquette, and ethical and legal considerations.
The book is organized in five parts with an easy-to-read font (great for us folks over 50). Each chapter has highly visible headers making it easy to find just what you're looking for. Additionally, there are informative social media factoids throughout the book and screen shots from various social media platforms. The screen shots really make it easy to understand and eliminate a lot of frustration by providing step-by-step instructions.
Here are my "Top Five" takeaways from the book:

Lawyers- Get this outstanding new book entitled, "Social Media for Lawyers" by Carolyn Elefant and Nicole Black.

This masterful joint presentation shares why social media is a long-term paradigm shift that is changing the legal profession.

It not only explains in detail how to correctly use social media to educate clients and strengthen relationships, but it also takes you by the hand and shows you what tools you can and should use to take your practice to the next level. If you're not using social media to build and market your practice, then you may not have a practice to market.

Get this book today. It's just that good!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Holly L. Lentz on November 26, 2012
Format: Paperback
Social Media is hardly understood by many lawyers. It is overwhelming and seems too loose and conversational - not professional. This book approaches Social Media thoughtfully, with the target audience in mind. The "why" behind the strategy and tactics is explained. Awareness of generational communication preferences is explored and any lawyer of any age can get something out of it. In short, this book helps break down what seems to be too big and too technical to understand. Smart business reasons, including the recent growing trends in usage are discussed. Ethics, which seems at odds with the very nature of Social Media is embraced and not overcomplicated. Nice work.
