    • WHAT IS SOCIAL MEDIA?
      “…social media is an umbrella term that refers to new social technologies, especially those where multimedia, audio and text are combined on the web with interactive, social elements ... the emphasis is on being social, and using the tools to bring people together”

    • TREND #5 – ’EVIDENTIARY’ USES OF SOCIAL MEDIA
      Facebook fact: ~ 600 million users & 20 million+ in Canada alone
      Twitter fact: 70 million tweets daily, mostly on mobile devices
      Is social media evidence admissible in court?
      “…given the pervasive use of Facebook and the large volume of photographs typically posted on Facebook sites, it is now incumbent on a party’s counsel to explain to the client, in appropriate cases, that documents posted on the party’s Facebook profile may be relevant to allegations made in the pleadings.”Leduc v. Roman, 2009 CanLII 6838
      All electronically-stored information ("ESI"), not just paper documents, is subject to discovery
      Is electronic evidence easy to obtain?
      “… when handed subpoenas (e.g, divorce, infidelity, child custody) service providers (e.g, Facebook, Hotmail, Twitter) may not disclose communications until consent is received.”
