One great idea is to use it to keep track of financial news. Since you read your social media feed several times a day, why not follow key financial accounts too. That way you do not have to make a special trip to all sorts of websites to know what is happening in the financial world.

SmithLaw, the offices of attorney Christopher D. Smith of Sarasota, follows some great accounts. These are listed below, so you can consider adding them to your Twitter and Facebook feeds. (When looking at these links, it is often best to be logged in to Facebook and Twitter for ease of liking these pages if you decide to do so.)


  • Sarasota Herald-Tribune and Bradenton Herald. They are a great way to find out about local and national financial news. Many of their reporters have their own feeds too, which offer even more in-depth coverage of issues.
  • CNN’s money section offers a wide array of mainstream national and international financial news. @BloombergNow also offers financial and business news.
  • @WSJBankruptcy offers bankruptcy news. Some Wall-Street Journal links require registration, but this account usually links to items that do not require it.


  • Yahoo!Finance offers links to many of their financial stories.
  • Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine has a comprehensive Facebook page.
  • Forbes shares a lot of its site with Facebook users.

We also use social media to keep track of breaking financial news and often retweet, so follow us on Twitter too. We are @SmithLawFlorida.
