Use Social Media to Learn About Practice Areas and Leaders in the Field

Social media is also a great method for learning about different practice areas and eventually building a reputation in the field.  Twitter and Google+ are great resources for finding and sharing articles, news, information, and more. For example, if you are interested in elder law, search Twitter for elder law, elder care, seniors, senior citizen, etc. and you will find information that may be of interest to you.  If you follow attorneys in your practice area of interest, and start re-sharing and using hashtags, other people will start to follow you and share your posts too. You’ll begin building a network of people who share your interests and respect what you post. Social media can provide you with an amazing opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and earn respect in your field. Don’t miss out on this chance!
