As licensed professionals, it is critical to be mindful of responsibilities in interactions with others, including those that occur electronically or via social media. Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn—there are many options for social networking, and they present a great way to stay in touch with friends and family as well as provide avenues for business promotion in an inexpensive, current format. But there may be dangers in that use, especially for lawyers who may be unaware of the interaction between the use of social media and their responsibilities under the Rules of Professional Conduct.
Amy C. DeVan is Assistant Regulation Counsel for the Colorado Supreme Court Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel in Denver, Colorado.
