Become familiar with social media evidence and learn the law and technology parameters as to preserving, requesting and producing such information.

Many civil litigators overlook that social media is often a rich source of discoverable evidence, like any other electronically stored information (ESI). This topic will highlight the many ways that social media evidence can have a significant impact on the merits of a case. You will be informed about the ways in which your client can seek and use social media evidence, and, when needed, object to the other side's overbroad requests and attempted uses. This information helps attorneys understand first, what types of social media evidence are available and from which sites, helps you strategize in your cases, we will explore how ill-advised posts have been impactful in a number of infamous disputes, and there will be a brief overview of some ethical guidelines requiring attorneys to be familiar with social media. You will hear about considerations for preserving (including ethically) and collecting social media information. As to discovery requests and responses, you will receive pointers on how to aptly request social media data and how to object to overly broad and/or intrusive requests. Finally, there will be an overview of admissibility issues as to motions, hearings and trials.

Various demonstrations will be displayed that cover privacy settings, messaging parameters and the vast information sets, archives, a user can readily download from his/her Facebook®, Twitter® and/or LinkedIn® accounts.
