It’s Hard for Law Firms to Go Wrong With Facebook Live
It’s Hard for Law Firms to Go Wrong With Facebook Live
Facebook Live is a relatively new feature that offers live-streaming video capabilities to its users.  It first came out in August of 2015 for verified public figures, then shortly after, became available to a select group of users (like a beta test), before becoming available to everyone.   The media has expertly exploited what Facebook live has to offer.  Meteorologists have live-streamed severe weather events, reaching far more viewers than they would typically reach online.  But it isn’t just for the media—the potential for law firms to tap into Facebook’s audience of nearly 2 billion people seems promising.

Will Chatbots Take Over?
We all know what chatbots are, they are everywhere—whether we like it or not.  When we make a customer service call, we interact with voice recognition software that has artificial intelligence.  When we engage in “online chat sessions” with companies, often we are interacting with a bot—often via Facebook messenger.  And law firms frequently use bots to field potential clients.  The technology has been advancing at a breakneck speed, and some firms are even using bots to take payments and (gasp!) give legal advice.  As technology continues to improve, many are wondering, will chatbots render call centers (and their high carrying costs) obsolete?
