To Link or Not to Link, That is the Question: A Primer on LinkedIn Etiquette: Social Media Lawyer, Spring 2014






My latest CIC Midwest News Social Media Lawyer column tells the tale of Kelly Blazek, Cleveland’s “2013 Communicator of the Year”, who, shall I say, reacted a bit uncharacteristically to a LinkedIn connection request from Diana Makota.  The details are set forth in the article, but suffice it to say, don’t publicly congratulate yourself as being an uber-connector and then turn around and bite someone’s head off for believing the hype.

As an added bonus, while we’re on the social media/law bent, check out the video of my presentation from Lommen Abdo’s Fall 2013 seminar on the subject of “Social Media and Your Workforce: Asset, Liability or Both?”
