Communities and Social Media

LinkedIn is a social networking website for people in professional occupations and is used for professional networking. LinkedIn is a great place to make professional connections with referral sources, such as elder law attorneys, accountants, bank trust officers, community groups, etc.
LinkedIn features thousands of interest “groups” – ranging from topical interests to specific company, school, and professional affiliations. ALCA opened its first group in 2009 and currently manages four groups. With so many groups and interests, this feature can be confusing.
