  • 10. 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.”
