Social Media Evidence in a Court of Law
The growth of social media such as Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter not only had a strong impact in the world, but also on our legal system. It gave birth to a new source of admissible evidence in court cases. Personal injury, family law, employment or any kind of claims where behavior and character are major issues can all become the breeding ground for social media evidence. From pictures of illegal activities like drug use to improper parenting and adultery, social networking sites can provide countless proof for lawyers to present to the trial judge.
