Social media evidence - Facebook and other electronically stored information.

If you are involved in litigation, anything you have ever put on Facebook or any other electronically stored information site may be admissible against you. Florida Rules of Civil Procedure were specifically amended in 2012 to provide guidelines pertaining to the discoverability of electronically stored information.  See Rule 1.350 (Section A and Section B) addressing the production of electronically stored information.

We believe it is much safer to avoid social media if you have a case pending. Nothing you put on a social media site can help you and it is generally only admissible if it hurts your case.
