Facebook for Lawyers
In a recent post, Joshua Fruchter cited several statistics that I find quite interesting:
- There are more than 63 million active users on Facebook
- Since 2007, Facebook grows by more than 250,000 per year
- There’s been an average 3% growth annually since 2007
- Active users double every 6 months
Interestingly, according to Joshua and Facebook, more than half of its users are college graduates and professionals. Sounds like a good demographic for lawyers!
One challenge, though, is how many of these professional and social networking entities can one participate in … Consider, for example, LinkedIn, supposedly a primary business networking entity. And what about YouTube? One could spend an entire life in this new, virtual world … and I’m not sure that would produce the best results. So, how does one choose?Tags: Management, Marketing, Technology
