Some small percentage of us enjoy a social platform known as Google Plus or Google + and it has recently introduced a new capability call “Google Communities.” These are essentially electronic bulletin boards that anyone can create.
I have created Minnesota Litigators on Google+. It is a tentative experiment, which will either be a fun and useful forum or a cyber ghost town. The community is limited to members of the Minnesota legal community (not just lawyers but also paralegals, legal secretaries, and others active in the Minnesota litigation community).
The primary reason for limiting members to this group is to avoid “trolls” or other internet users who not only add no value but who are destructive forces to social platforms such as this one.
