Taken from the briefing Ethical Concerns Involving Attorney Use of Social Media: New New York State Bar Association Guidelines recorded July, 2017 in New York.

Social media is seemingly all pervasive. Unsurprisingly, social media is used by attorneys for many purposes. That use carries both benefits and ethical risks for attorneys. This Briefing will examine those benefits and risks through a review of the just-released third edition of the New York State Bar Association Social Media Ethics Guidelines, a comprehensive and well-regarded guide to attorney use of social media.
