Twitter acquired Periscope in February, apparently looking to bring the nature of its frenzied, real-time text updates to life on screen. Available for iOS with Android on the way, the app allows users to stream vision from their smartphone camera to anybody and everybody using Twitter’s distribution network.

Periscope lets you broadcast live video to the world. Going live will instantly notify your followers who can join, comment and send you hearts in real time. The more hearts you get, the higher they flutter on the screen.

Other features:

[+] REPLAY: When your broadcast is over, you can make it available for replay so viewers can watch later. Viewers can replay your broadcast with comments and hearts to relive the full experience. Replays currently last 24 hours. You can delete your replay at any time.

[+] PRIVATE: If you want to broadcast to specific people, press the lock icon before going live and choose who you want to invite to your broadcast. 

[+] TWITTER: You can choose to share your Periscope broadcasts on Twitter by tapping the bird icon before you start broadcasting. When you go live, you’ll tweet a link so that your Twitter followers can watch on the web (or in the app)

[+] MANAGE NOTIFICATIONS: Periscope will suggest people for you to follow based on your Twitter network. You can always follow new people, or unfollow them if you don’t want to be notified when they go live. You can also adjust notification preferences in Periscope Settings (in Profile)

[+] HEARTS: Periscope keeps track of how many hearts you get from your viewers. The more hearts, the higher you get in the “Most Loved” list.

Starting a Podcast? Here’s What to Buy–Lawyerist

by Sam Glover on March 27th, 2015

“…When I was trying to figure out what kind of equipment we needed to start podcasting, I was frustrated by the lack of a good just-get-this-stuff list so I didn’t have to research what to get, buy it, realize it’s the wrong thing, then buy something else. Fortunately that only happened a couple of times. To save you the same frustrating experience, here is my just-get-this-stuff list, which is also what we are using right now to record the Lawyerist Podcast…”.

The standard iOS Messages app–you know, the app you use daily for trading all those text messages, photos, and videos–can do much more than you might think. Not only can you forward any text messages you receive, you can also find out when a given message was sent or received, shush an annoying group thread, and sync Messages between your iOS device and your Mac.

The value of the iPhone 6 Plus for lawyers-Kevin O’Keefe

By Kevin O’Keefe on January 6, 2015 in Mobile, Publishing

We’re all in the media today. You as a lawyer or legal marketing professional and me as the CEO of a company. We report and comment directly to our audience or we’ll not be heard. The days where reporters contacted us, though not completely over, are on the steep decline. The impact of public relations professionals getting us media coverage is also on the decline.

In addition to the change in who is a media producer, how the media moves has changed. An awful lot of media is distributed socially, from person to person, via blogs and social networks. Brand name media companies do not have near the distribution power. In fact they rely on everyday people like you and I to move their stories via social media.

If I can produce media and share media, I’m part of the media. If I do that on a niche, like good lawyers do, I get known, build relationships and build word of mouth. I’ll even get better at what I do by learning via my social network.

How does Plus help with this?

Lawyers may look at what jurors post online, but only if it’s available to the public-ABA Journal

 

***

The gist of Formal Opinion 466 is that, within the context of Model Rule 3.5, a lawyer may review a juror’s or potential juror’s various postings on websites and social media. But the lawyer should not send jurors or prospective jurors a request for access, either directly or indirectly, to their social media accounts because doing so would amount to a violation of the prohibition in Model Rule 3.5(b) against ex parte communications with jurors that are not authorized by law or court order.

In a footnote, the ethics committee states that it “does not take a position on whether the standard of care for competent lawyer performance requires using Internet research to locate information about jurors that is relevant to the jury selection process. We are also mindful of the recent addition of Comment [8] to Model Rule 1.1. This comment explains that a lawyer ‘should keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology.’ “

LinkedIn has surged past 300 million users. It remains the most popular social media platform for business and professional use. In fact, it’s becoming rare to find people in any kind of business who say that they are not on LinkedIn.

At the same, a certain sense of complacency has settled over the use of LinkedIn. We often hear people say that they’ve been on LinkedIn for a while and they haven’t found it all that helpful, especially for reaching potential customers and clients. Since LinkedIn has been around for more than 10 years, there’s also a sense of “been there, done that” about it. Some people are always looking for the next new thing in social media.

In fact, most of us have barely scratched the surface of either the features or the potential of LinkedIn. LinkedIn has steadily added new features, especially in the past year or so. This will be a great year to take your use of LinkedIn up a level or two, and increase the value and benefits of the platform to you and your business.
