Embed Social Media Updates Into Your Law Blog

Lawyers and law firms routinely use social share buttons on their websites and law blogs to share content with their followers.  This is a great way to share content. I also recommend lawyers and law firms to embed status updates into their websites and law blogs to make their content more shareable.

Below I will illustrate how lawyers and law firms can embed status updates into their website or law blog so their audience can share more of their content on Twitter, Google+, and Facebook.

How To Make Your Legal Content More Shareable
