I wouldn't describe myself as a social media guru, although if I'm in a roomful of lawyers the chances are I'll know more about the subject than the rest of them combined. This isn't hubris: I know for a fact I was appointed to the management board of a legal charity in large part because none of the other trustees, nor many of the staff, knew their Twitter from their Tumblr. It is, however, a fact I find terribly amusing.
Hard as it may be for anyone under the age of 30 to believe, when I started work there was no such thing as social media. In fact, there was barely even email. I remember trying to send my first email, via a modem that kept dropping the connection. It took so long I ended up phoning the person who sent it and we chatted while I waited for the message to come through.
