Social Media Traps
When 20% of married couples today met online, when 40% of millennial social media users report checking on their social media sites before getting out of bed in the morning, when the President, presidential candidates, and octogenarian Rupert Murdoch use Twitter, and when almost every business has a presence on social media, there can be no doubt that social media permeates society. No person or company engaged in estate planning can afford to ignore social media; however, social media usage raises a host of ethical issues, ranging from claims of being inadvertently engaged in the unlawful practice of law because of social media posts to “screening” potential employees by looking at their social media sites to “friending” an adverse party to First Amendment rights. Nationally known speaker Mike Rubin will challenge your thinking, raise issues to ponder, and give you something to smile about with his unique blend of scholarship and humor combined with one of the most unusual multimedia presentations you’ll ever experience.
