It's kind of freaky how much your friends know about you just by looking at your FB chat. They can tell if you're on your phone, how long it's been since you checked your phone, etc.  Take a read through these and let me know what other tricks you'll be performing!
Here's how to disable read receipts, maximize photo privacy, and more.

To build a community or to not build a community? That is the question so many content marketers are asking themselves today. We stand firmly on the side of "JUST DO IT!" Here are some tips to make it worth your time.
There is a big debate about whether a business should build a community because of lack of ROI. If you follow the Gini Dietrich plan, it will drive sales.

Hello Law Firm Social Media Community Members! I created this community many years ago to share and discuss social media, and how it affects Lawyers and Legal Professionals. 

As a member of this community, please be selective of what you post. Posts should relate to social media updates, how Lawyers can utilize social media for marketing, success (and non-success) stories, SEO tips, website design tips, example of law firms who are using social media right - you get the picture.

Please do not post status updates about marketing your firm (unless it's how you use social media to market your firm), your services or anything off topic. Events are welcome as long as they are aimed at legal professionals and relate to social media marketing. 

I am going to be diligent about erasing posts that don't comply with the rules but I'm sure I won't have to delete too many.

I'm also looking for group members to help with running the community. Please message me at samanthataracollier@gmail.com if interested.

Good Content and Web Analytics Turbocharge Legal Marketing - Online content marketing is the best way for lawyers to establish their reputations and attract new business, according to Per Casey. Web traffic analysis is the best way for lawyers and law firms to measure the success of a content marketing campaign and move forward based on that information. Content marketing and web analytics are inseparable parts of the same strategic process.

Most of us have LinkedIn profiles, but with all of LinkedIn's recent feature changes, do you know what it currently looks like? I took a look and was pretty shocked. Presentations were displayed differently among other things. Definitely check out this article to keep your profile up to date. +Stem Legal +Steve Matthews
LinkedIn has long been the preferred choice for lawyers as a social business tool. There’s lots of studies to support that, and it likely doesn’t come as a surprise to many. Given this imp

Interesting insights from +Brooke Ballard 
Social media lurkers may love you and your company but never let you know. Can emotional content lure them in?

I recently had spinal surgery for the second time. I had surgery in 2005 at the age of 25 for a slipped disc and then again a few weeks ago for 2 slipped discs due to injury. Dr. Padilla is the very best at what he does. He gets straight to the point and tells you how it is. When I decided to have surgery, I was fully informed of the risks and benefits. Suffice to say I am healing and recovering well. Dr. Padilla has a great bedside manner and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking treatment.

I'm proud to call St. Peter's Fireside my church and was baptized by Alastair Sterne, the minister at St. Peter's. We attend the weekly services as well as the small group meetings and everyone is warm and friendly. I would strongly recommend St. Peter's for anyone looking to go to church. There are people of all ages and lots of children as well. As a parent, I enjoy the childcare for kids aged 1 - 2 and the Children's Program is great too. I love St. Pete's. :)

I would strong suggest you think of sending your children elsewhere if you're considering Queen Mary. One of the professionals that manages this facility has an anger management problem. His name is Doug Feaver. Recently, my 9-month-old and I were leaving a parking spot after I ran in to pick her up. I had been there for 2 minutes and it was a private spot. It was a mistake and it was the first time I had parked there. Doug ran out and started swearing at me saying that I'd be sorry for parking there. I apologized and he continued to rant and rave in front of my daughter. After finding out he works in childcare, I felt the need to warn other people.

I visited the Capilano Mall Gem Goldsmith location and had terrible customer service. My wedding ring was stuck on my hand and I had to have it cut off. I called the goldsmith and he told me to come down and he'd cut it off right away. He told me to come down within 10 minutes as he was leaving to get off work. I quickly arranged daycare for my children and came down. A clerk by the name of Fatma (Fatima?) told me that, no, they don't cut off rings and I should go to a firestation or hospital. I told her that I spoke with the goldsmith at their location and she didn't believe me. She said I must not have talked to them. I showed her my phone and the number I called - and she said, nope, it wasn't them. I know that cutting a ring off is not a big ticket item and there is very little money to be made, but this sort of service is unacceptable. I've worked for a jewelry store for years and it takes 10 seconds to cut off a ring. My hand did not need medical assistance and that was obvious. She just didn't have the time to look after my needs. What's even worse is that my fiance bought my engagement ring from the same lady! I didn't even know it was her. I will not shop here again and I recommend that other people shop at a store that cares about their customers.

One of your drivers, Doug Fever, is an incredibly rude and disrespectful employee. He swore and yelled at me in front of my 9 month old daughter. You should seriously consider who is working for you.
