You want your image to be consistent and thoughtful and what comes up at the top of a search to match that. So, go ahead and Google yourself.
One thing I tell students all the time is to Google their name, email address, and frequently used usernames from a computer they haven’t logged in to before. It’s the best way to know which personal accounts you need to lock down, what else is coming up alongside your information, and how to craft your professional persona to stand out in the results.
Thanks to the University of Central Florida social media managers group for having me talk to them today. Everyone had such great questions!
We’ve released our second digital publication app for iPad!The Penn Law app currently features an interactive Faculty Brochure, with additional folios (such as the JD viewbook) on the way soon.
La Salle University’s PRSSA Chat
Earlier today, I got a chance to Skype in to a Public Relation Student Society of America (PRSSA) meeting at my alma mater, La Salle University. The students were prepared with some fantastic questions on how to leverage social media to advance their public relations goals.
The chat was live-tweeted (I’m used to being the live-tweeter, not tweet-ee!), so take a look below to see what we talked about:

“We don’t think about the ROI of social; we think about the cost of ignoring it,” said Nissan’s director of digital marketing, Erich Marx. “I’m not dismissing ROI – because it’s always important — but we’re not about to cut back or dismiss social media because we can’t define it,” he added.
I was huge into marketing, creative and such [in college], and I feel like law school/legal profession just looks at social media like a bad thing and I’m in a confined box of conformity, but I’m trying to think of a way to make it work for me as a student/future lawyer.
A student sent me an email last night asking for on-on-one social media training and simultaneously summed up the biggest challenge I face in my job.
Over the past two years in my current role, I’ve been working with/against/through a sharing-averse culture concerned with privacy and liability. However, through attempts at educating and dialoguing about these issues with students, staff, and faculty, I’m seeing the attitudes toward social media change slowly here and we’re developing a culture of sharing.
This email, to me, is a sign of the ice finally breaking.
