Social media sending the legal profession back to the future?

This blog presents an interesting thesis: that social media actually brings lawyers back to their "roots" of being required to advertise through word of mouth.

Is this really the case? Isn't social media alot more than that?  Rather than just putting out a word of mouth, isn't social media transcending into the print media realm? Thus triggering constrictions that, pre-Bates, would have made the use of social media just as unethical as a newspaper ad?
