Docs + Lawyers + Social Networks
Last week I participated on a panel at the Canadian Bar Association's Health Law Summit in Niagara-on-the-Lake called #TMI: PROFESSIONAL AND BOUNDARY ISSUES WITH SOCIAL MEDIA.
My fellow panelists Robert Sheahan and Maureen Murphy, partners at Gowlings WLG and Daniel Reid an associate at Harper Grey LLP in Vancouver spoke more eloquently and authoritatively than I did on 'how social media is commonly used and misused by professionals, boundary issues that can arise, and how social media can be used in litigation, both as a sword and a shield.' (The latter especially provocative and useful.)
Of my part of the panel, as one lawyer said to me after the presentation: 'You helped me understand better what my kids are doing on social' :) But I like to think there was some value from my contribution for health and legal professionals who are thinking of debuting or juicing a social web presence.

A New York Times article this morning called 'Don't Let Facebook Make You Miserable' offers more context to my first slide about why people share.
