LinkedIn 10 years on

Social media has come a long way in the last 10 years. When it first entered the legal world, it was seen as nothing more than a marketing gimmick. Lawyers were hesitant to use it, and those who did use it only did so to promote their services.

Now, social media is an integral part of many law firms' marketing strategies. It's a great way to connect with potential clients, build relationships and stay up-to-date with the latest industry news.

Looking ahead, it's exciting to think about what new social media platforms will emerge in the next 10 years. We may even see the rise of the metaverse - a digital world where we can interact with each other in a virtual reality setting.

LinkedIn - The social channel of choice when it comes to lawyers and law firms. What started out as a recruitment website back in Reid Hoffman's living room in 2002 to 830 million members in more than 200 countries.
