A lot of lawyers, and I’m sorry to say, legal marketers, continue to ignore or poo-poo social media and social networking. Take in mind that many of these people also resisted e-mail, websites, Blackberries, bright white letterhead and colored logos.

Well, the numbers have been rolling in this month, and I don’t see how anyone can continue to ignore social media and social networking.

Individual stats like Facebook passing the 400 million user mark, Twitter hitting 50 million tweets per day, and YouTube viewers watching 1 billion videos per day are impressive on their own, but what if we looked at Internet-related stats collectively? Jesse Thomas did just that in his video State of the Internet.
