SOCIAL MEDIA AND LEGAL ACTIONS
Social Media is a prominent part of many people’s lives these days. With the advent of these technologies comes a lot of hidden risk. People tweet and post on Facebook about their personal experiences without filtering much of it. Many people don’t realize that these posts and tweets can be used against them in pending litigation.
While you may feel the compulsion to post or tweet about everything that happens to you, you should resist the urge when you get involved with something that could result in pending litigation. These tweets and posts can be viewed as party admissions and used as evidence against you.
In this age of technology, social media is increasingly becoming a source of problems for people if they aren’t careful of what they post. With the ever increasing presence of social media in our lives, persons should exercise caution in what is posted on social media sites.
