Social media is becoming more and more of an issue for us and our clients. There are those advocating use of it for sentencing purposes, but in many ways, it seems that social media is more likely to hurt our clients than help. It seems prudent to advise clients not to blog or post anything on-line. Experience and common sense point to mostly negative consequences when clients post things on-line. And there are numerous examples of the government using this media to our clients' disadvantage.
Just something to think about and talk about with clients.
