Webinar – Gone Viral – Social Media in eDiscovery

As the last election cycle made abundantly clear, social media is currently an influential, indispensable part of American life.  And, as it worms its way ever deeper into our relationships, our professional activities, and our culture as a whole, its impact on discovery is growing as well:

  • The Advisory Committee Notes to the FRCP’s December 2015 Amendments include an explicit reference to the need to understand and consider social media sources during preservation
  • An August 2016 review by X1 uncovered more than 9,500 cases from the preceding 12 months in which social media evidence played a significant role – an increase of 50% over the prior year
  • In a recently published ILTA survey, 77% of responding law firms said they had handled cases involving the collection and processing of social media data in the past year, and more than half of those firms reported social media data being implicated in 4 or more matters during the year

Unfortunately, the nature, diversity, and volume of social media data, present a variety of challenges for practitioners.
