It’s difficult to remember life before social media. Twenty years ago, the term ‘private life’ still existed and was actually attainable. Nowadays, it seems everyone has access to just about every detail of your life. An employer wants to know how old you are, sexual orientation, relationship status, what restaurants you like to frequent? Check Facebook! The social media outlets are nearly endless: Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogs, etc. Now imagine that you are involved in a lawsuit. Maybe you didn’t mind all of your information out there for friends of friends to see, but now you want to take it all back. You want to hide it all because now there is probably a private investigator searching all of this information to find things to use against you. Social Media is a defense attorney’s best friend. This session discusses how you can use social media and surveillance to your advantage in the midst of a lawsuit, whether you are the Plaintiff or Defendant.
