Author – Matthew Verga, March 2020
As a review of almost any day’s news will demonstrate, social media remains an influential, indispensable part of American life – for better or for worse. Moreover, as social media has been working its way ever deeper into our relationships, our professional activities, and our culture as a whole, its impact on discovery has been growing as well. Unfortunately, the nature, diversity, and volume of social media data continue to present a variety of technical and legal challenges for practitioners.
In this free, thirty-four page white paper – newly updated for 2020, XDD Director of Education Mathew Verga, JD, reviews the things practitioners need to know about dealing with social media in eDiscovery, including: what sources there are, what data those sources contain, how that data can be obtained, and how it can be authenticated, as well as issues of spoliation, ethics, and reliability.
