Social media, the once “trending” aspect now serves as common tool of communication in today’s society. Blogs, the “digital diary” as it originally started out to be, have not only grown in popularity, but have matured to serve purposes in many different industries. In a post on Lexblog, CEO and founder of Lexblog, Kevin ‘O Keefe was interested in learning how college students can use blogs and other social media platforms for not only professional development ,but networking to build relationships and word of mouth as well to gain employment upon graduation.
O’Keefe would present at both the University of Notre Dame and Michigan State University within a week timeframe. At Notre Dame he presented about “how businesses are best using blogs and other social media for marketing and business development — as well as how students can blog and use social media for professional development and networking.” Later that week he presented and led a discussion leading a discussion among law students at Michigan State who were already using social media and blogging for professional development and networking.
So what do you think?
How can undergrads and law students best use blogs and social media?
