The legal industry is slowly increasing its usage of social media platforms; about one-third of the ‘AmLaw 100’ law firms are on Twitter.
LexisNexis recently commissioned a report on the social media engagement of 110 law firms across the world. Here are some interesting highlights of the firms that were audited:

- Only 12 use YouTube
- Sydney and New York have the highest numbers of legal bloggers
