In-House Interrogatory

Asked: Our weekly question to the In-House community

In-House counsel are social media spies.

Or they are at least according to a new survey by Greentarget, Zeughauser Group and Inside Counsel. Social media use among in-house counsels is up, with 67 percent of those surveyed saying they’d used social media in the last 24 hours or past week as part of their jobs.

But 74 percent of those general counsels are in stealth mode, only watching and reading social media and not participating in online dialogue.

So here’s our question for you:

How do you use social media? Are you in “listen-only” mode while online?
