Originally published in the September 6, 2012 issue of SmallLaw: Facebook. Good God, what is it good for? Oh wait, that's Edwin Starr's "War." Still, Starr, who died a year before Facebook was born, might ask the same question about Facebook. And so might you (especially if you bought the stock). But let's not forget all those potential clients on Facebook. Whether you "like" Facebook or not, you should understand how to use it productively, how to avoid embarrassing mistakes, and how it can generate new business for your law firm. In this issue of SmallLaw, law practice advisor Erik Mazzone provides five Facebook tips for small law firms.
