New ABA Book Helps Lawyers Build Their Practices with Facebook
CHICAGO, Sept. 5, 2012 — Many lawyers use Facebook, the world’s most popular social-networking platform, to communicate with friends and family across the globe. But lawyers are missing a major opportunity if they do not consider the business possibilities of their Facebook accounts. With a few simple steps, lawyers can harness Facebook to market their services, grow their practices and expand their legal network — all by using the same methods they already use to communicate with friends and family. Facebook® in One Hour for Lawyers will show any attorney — from Facebook novices to advanced users — how to use this powerful tool for both professional and personal purposes. In just one hour, lawyers will learn to:
- Set up a Facebook account;
- Optimize privacy and other settings;
- Create a profile and manage your timeline;
- Find, organize and manage friends;
- Use Facebook search and navigation;
- Participate on Facebook with updates, comments, likes and timelines;
- Send messages, join groups and subscribe to feeds;
- Establish a business page;
- Monitor your Facebook network; and
- Develop a Facebook strategy to grow your legal network.
Facebook® in One Hour for Lawyers is written by Dennis Kennedy, a lawyer for MasterCard Worldwide, and Allison Shields, founder and president of Legal Ease Consulting Inc.
