验证&反洗钱检查专家Callcredit Direct报告说,社交网站Twitter上律师事务所之间的活动大大增加。律师事务所传统上是在纸质环境中运作的,但是针对该行业人士的Twitter社区(即“ Twibes”)的日益普及表明,具有远见卓识的律师事务所正在拥抱这些新技术以获取商业利益。 Callcredit战略经理Hywel Morgan,直接评论道:“ 推特是一种很好的工具,可用于联网,生成新线索和广播行业更新。我们自己的帐户每周都会吸引新的关注者,而我们的某些合法客户(例如Inksters和John Collins)正在从使用该服务中获得真正的业务收益。这种能量能否持续尚有待观察,但就目前而言,我们对其所带来的机会感到兴奋。”

•我们'此后就向Hywel Morgan询问了FaceBook和LinkedIn。这是他不得不说的“我认为Facebook在美国是B2B和B2C交流和销售的有用商业工具,但在英国,它在信贷和法律领域非常局限于B2C。这当然可以从我们在Callcredit Direct的经验中得到证实–我们拥有Facebook,LinkedIn和Twitter,并且从Facebook页面站点收到的大多数查询都与我们的消费者信用报告服务Callcredit Check有关。对我而言,这表明了B2C通信对所有业务(包括律师及其供应商)的潜在威力,但作为一种B2B交互方法,至少在这个国家,判决仍然没有。
 
“这似乎是因为在英国,Facebook仍被认为处于'social' end of the 社会的 networking scale and many organisations appear to be banning Facebook across their internal networks, due to beliefs that staff are abusing the service. Of late, many of the discussions about 推特 have tended to have a business or political angle to them. Facebook however seems to be perceived as a central part of the celebrity and youth domain. Therefore I feel a lot of businesses are not prepared to invest resource in this platform just yet.”
