NYLMA Social Media Buzz: Spring 2015

by Guy Alvarez on June 30, 2015

The use of social media is growing in our LMA Chapter. The number of followers, re-tweets and mentions on Twitter by our members has steadily grown over the past few months. This increased usage is clearly a trend. We expect to see continued growth for the use of social media by our members. Here is a quick look of how our Twitter followers have grown over the last couple of months:

If you are interested in being a part of the NYLMA Twitter list, please email Sue Russon at lmametrony@gmail.com with the subject “NYLMA Twitter list.” In the body of the email, please give Sue your name and your Twitter handle. That is all! Please contact Guy Alvarez at guy@good2bsocial.com if you have any questions.

Meanwhile, the chapter continues to maintain and grow a variety of LinkedIn groups. We currently have LinkedIn groups for each of our eight SIGs (Business Development, CMO, CRM, Corporate Social Responsibility, Future Leaders, Small Firm, Social Media and Special Events) as well as our New Jersey group.

To find a LinkedIn Group, go to the search box at the top of any page on LinkedIn, select Groups from the dropdown list on the left. Then type in the group name to find the group you want. Another way to find a group is by moving your cursor over Interests at the top of your LinkedIn homepage and select Groups. Select the Find a group link on the right side of the page and type in your group name to find the group you want.

Once you have found the group you are interested in joining simply Click Join on the group Discussions page or anywhere you see the button.

NYLMA members got a full blast of social media at the June luncheon, “How to Get Senior Partners to Understand the Value of Social Media” where a panel of lawyers and legal industry communications experts discussed how and why lawyers should be involved in social media platforms such as Twitter and LinkedIn. Full coverage of the luncheon appears separately in this edition of the NYLMA Newsletter. For a running Twitter account of the luncheon, go to #NYLMA.
