There is a lot of web space devoted to social networking. Not wanting to miss the bandwagon, professionals use social networking sites, too. I just signed up for legallyminded, a beta networking site for attorneys. (It was sort-of by accident; I was checking out the site and got carried away. Before I knew it, I had an account. Now what?). I have a LinkedIn account, which I rarely visit. As they say, “my bad.” I blame no one but myself for both having these accounts and not making full use of them. I’ve been told that this is a great way to network with both like-minded professionals and potential clients. I just can’t quite make that leap.
I’m not a huge fan of social networking. I can’t help but think that there are other things I should be doing with my time. I have a Facebook page – I signed up so I could keep track of my kids. I rarely add content. I’m not saying this a bad thing; I simply may not be as “social” as the average Jane.
