Linkedin and lawyers


In fact, only Linkedin is suitable among social media for lawyers. Facebook can do more harm than help. A professional should answer the question if I would have used another professional if I had found him on Facebook or Instagram, and found out about his four red cats.

Who knows what it looks like in the world, at least in Poland no social media can guarantee a reasonable level of thought. We simply treat the public domain as a sphere of specific freedom and irresponsibility, i.e. as a sphere of no-man. I’m not talking about hate, but about the lack of a creative exchange of thoughts.

I posted on this matter on Linkedin, precisely because only Linkedin is suitable for us lawyers. The problem, however, is that on Linkedin, the main topic among Polish professionals is #łubudubu, to use the immortal symbol of inflated praise and slyness, which usually walk side by side. So either that we won something and we are the best at something, or that we congratulate others that they are so beautiful and smart because they won something. These types of laudations.

The reactions were interesting, over 9,000. views, almost 100 entries, almost exclusively unknown to me. You can see that the topic is bothering a lot of people who do not necessarily have the time and willingness to read about how extremely important others are.

The fact is, however, that those whom my criticism could be most concerned with did not respond. I am not surprised by them. The dispute about what Linkedin will be and what it will be about comes down to what Linkedin we will do.

I am a lawyer with thirty years of experience, in my first professional life I was a journalist. But in my every life I am most attracted to curiosity, discovering new lands, and secondly - convincing people to do what is wise, good or beautiful. I will also let myself be convinced of these three things.
