Evan Brown is a member of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. He blogs about law issues in his spare time. And he has a day job, too, as an Internet and technology lawyer at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP in Chicago.
It turns out that many lawyers, like journalists, politicians, cat lovers and other subcultures, love using social media to communicate with peers, share news and promote themselves.
"As with any sociological group, there's a full spectrum when it comes to willingness and readiness to adopt technology," said Brown, 34, who has been trying a new professional network for lawyers called Martindale-Hubbell Connected. "You've got Luddites who don't know how to turn on their computers and sophisticated lawyers who write their own software applications," he said.
Brown, whose firm has been using Martindale-Hubbell Connected for about a month in beta testing, said using social media don't directly generate clients and that lawyers who join sites for that purpose will be disappointed.
For him, maintaining a presence on social and professional sites is a way to enhance his credentials and show a little more of his personality.
"I believe the people who come across my content get some value seeing that human side of me," Brown said.

Evan D. Brown, an associate and copyright and trademark attorney at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, often works with clients who use social media to promote their goods and services. He said franchisors expect their franchisees to advertise, but they are not always prepared for social media and its open-ended nature.
"Companies for years have been accustomed to controlling the message," Brown said. "With social media tools, so much of the message is in the hands of the users, or the fans, or the enthusiasts."
Customers can now build a community around a specific franchise location by offering their own comments about that franchise, Brown said.
Brown agreed that if franchisors want to enhance their brand, they need to present messages in ways that resonate with customers and spread to other like-minded people.
"As consumers we have these tools that allow us to engage in conversations with others and to share our enthusiasm about certain companies and certain services," he said.
