Don’t Let Facebook Wreck Your Chances in Court
The advent of the Internet has made information posted about anyone or anything almost instantly available to web searchers. But while the internet is a wealth of information, literally at your fingertips, it can also backfire on a person. Take social media, for example. Facebook is just one of the social media outlets that people use to share, communicate, and sometimes even to vent. But Facebook can also be used against you, particularly in legal matters. If you are involved in a court case, you need to be aware of how Facebook can damage your case.
Once a comment is posted on Facebook, or any one of dozens of social media venues, it is out there for anyone to see. In a court case, you have to be careful about what you say and to whom you say it, as it can and will be used against you if the situation dictates.
