Google+ for Lawyers: Is it Worth Your Time?


What is does the +1 icon mean, and what relevance does it have for lawyers?

Google+ is Google’s newest social network. It has features similar to Facebook, but with a few more advantages. For instance, by dividing your contacts into Circles, you can segregate your audience. When you publish a post, you get to choose who sees it. When would this come in handy? Say you post an announcement about new billing options in your firm. You may only want to show clients and team members — not your colleagues (competitors). Circles let you choose who sees what. You can do the same thing on Facebook, but it’s more difficult and time consuming.

Another difference is the Huddle feature. Let’s say you and your friends are planning a getaway. With Huddle, all of your pals can join a live chat on their phones and text their input as you plan the trip. It happens in real time.
