users worldwide, including:


2.2 Billion Active Facebook Accounts


800 Million Active Instagram Accounts


330 Million Active Twitter Accounts


260 Million Active Linkedin Accounts


225 Million Active Snapchat Accounts

According to a 2017 survey by Robert Half Legal, 52% of lawyers have reported an increase over the past two years in lawsuits involving posts, images, and data found on social media.

According to the ILTA 2018 Litigation and Practice Support Survey, 90% of law firms conducted social media discovery that year, with a 46% increase in firms handling at least 20 matters per year involving social media evidence.

Demographics continue to fuel the meteoric rise of social media in litigation.

Simple Screenshots are Not Enough!

Screenshots and simple PDF files can be easily altered with readily available editing tools. Digital evidence requires proof of authenticity under the Federal Rules of Evidence (FRE) 901. Per FRE902, social media evidence is not self-authenticating. New additions to FRE902, sections 13 & 14, further strengthen the requirement for forensic preservation.

  • webpreserver

    Social media evidence must pass the same barriers as other types of trial evidence: relevance, authentication, and Rule 403, among others.

    When there is no dispute as to authenticity of ESI, 902(13) and (14) should help achieve the laudable goal of reducing the expense of litigation. Rather than present live testimony of a foundation witness, the proponent establishes authenticity under 902(13) and (14) by presenting a certification containing information that would be sufficient to establish authenticity if the information were provided by testimony at a hearing or trial.

Solve Preservation Challenges

Recent and ongoing changes to social media platforms further complicate proper preservation of content, both in terms of complete data collection and privacy considerations.

  • webpreserver

    Since 2018’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, collection has been difficult due to platforms like facebook limiting API availability.

  • webpreserver

    Facebook is significantly limiting data available from Facebook’s Events, Groups, and Pages APIs plus Facebook Login, as well as Instagram accounts. Facebook is also shutting down search by email or user name and changing its account recovery system after discovering malicious actors were using these to scrape people’s data.


  • webpreserver

    With recent technological changes to Facebook and Instagram, WebPreserver has become our preferred method for capturing those accounts.
