Question: "One of my longtime social and professional friends was appointed this year as our newest local judge. We have been social media friends for years. I haven’t appeared before her yet, but expect I will at some point. Are we obligated to “un-friend” and “unfollow” each other?" Our children are friends, too, and participate in many activities together. We share photos online. It appears harmless. Yet I’m thinking it’s not worth the risk. "And, if we do remain online friends, would disclosure of the online connections prevent any perceptions of impropriety?"Originally published October 24, 2017
