Social media controversies, such as Cambridge Analytica and Facebook, #planebae, politicians blocking social media followers, and Alex Jones being kicked off Twitter, have dominated recent news. Can average users keep up, or must they sigh and click “Accept.”?
This Lecture focuses on social media’s impact on litigants and society. It will examine the unique challenges of finding and introducing as evidence social media data, ways to minimize the cost and uncertainty of using such data, and how to predict the legal outcomes in tech-heavy cases. This Lecture also considers important policy concerns raised as social media and related services become key tools to everyday life and offers some new insights and standards for governing the use of social media data.
