While Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter draw the lion’s share of social media attention, there are many social media platforms available to lawyers. Names like Tumblr, Pinterest and Foursquare represent just a few of the social media alternatives you might already be using or thinking about using. How can you evaluate which of these social media tools might be worthy of your time and effort? In this episode, we survey the lesser-traveled landscapes of the social media world, identify some tools that might make sense to some lawyers in different scenarios, and speculate about the future of specialized social media tools.
