Social media is very popular for court reporters to share content about court reporting but it’s important
to know what you’re posting and be aware of any repercussions from your posting. It’s crucial to
understand that not everyone will have the same reaction to your social media commentary.
Some tips and tricks for good social media practices include paying attention to spelling and grammar because as a court reporter accuracy is definitely something to keep in mind. Errors in your posts can lead to you being perceived differently.
Another thing to keep in mind is to separate business and personal accounts. Make sure that your posts about family events are separate from business posts about the job and sharing updates with colleagues. You have to remember that what is said online is a permanent record and to be mindful of your audience. Inappropriate posts can damage your reputation and maybe even that of your company.
Why is it important to stay on social media with court reporting? It’s a great way to spread the word
about court reporting and how rewarding a job it can be. One article stated:
“Whether it be posts on Facebook about a court reporting career, or a trending topic like we all saw at
the NCAA when Nigel Hayes tried stumping a reporter with uncommon words, it’s becoming easier to
disseminate information about the profession.”
You can subscribe to blogs, join LinkedIn or Facebook groups, or Twitter feeds focused on court reporting as these can enhance your career and even lead to career growth. Keeping up with current
news and posting blogs and helpful comments can be useful to other court reporters, lawyers, and legal
