Judges more open to using social media

Study shows judges are warming up to Facebook and Twitter

According to a new report by The Conference of Court Public Information Officers (CCPIO), state judges around the country seem to be less averse to using social media in both their professional and personal lives.

The survey asked judges to react to the statement: “Judges can use social media profile sites, such as Facebook, in their professional lives without compromising professional conduct codes of ethics,” and only 45.4 percent disagreed or strongly disagreed with the statement—down from 47.6 percent in 2010.
