Social Network Websites Team Up for Legal Content

By  |  Published 

July 22, 2010 – Two of the more professional social networks, LinkedIn and JD Supra, have teamed up to launch a new application: Legal Updates. LinkedIn is the business-minded, resume-style social profile site that allows users to create a virtual resume, recommend colleagues, and network with other professionals. JD Supra has long been a great portfolio site for your articles, newsletters, press releases, and court filings, keeping them in order and easy to distribute.

Legal Updates is an add-on to your LinkedIn profile that showcases and distributes the legal content from JD Supra on your homepage. Users can customize the feeds to specific legal topics or individual sources. The application also features a browsable, searchable library of legal information directly available from their main LinkedIn page.

This new application, which has the potential to reach LinkedIn’s 70+ million users, allows lawyers to upload their own content and distribute it throughout the networks. You can create a portfolio of your work and connect with other members related to your practice areas.

Early launch data is promising, and the initial response has been that this awesome new feature has been a partnership many have been waiting for since the two services began. Integration of social media networks has been growing, with Facebook integration appearing on many websites, and Twitter streams running on sidebars across the Internet.
