Social Media Guidelines – Too Much Information!

Social Media Guidelines – Too Much Information!

You are reading this blog which by definition is a form of social media.  Merriam-Webster defines social media as:  forms of electronic communication (as Web sites for social networking and microblogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content (as videos).  https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/social%20media

Social media is how we communicate today.  Have a quick though?  Tweet it.  Want to catch up with friends?  Scroll through FaceBook.  Had an amazing meal?  Instagram a picture.  It’s what we do.  But if you’ve been in a wreck or hurt due to someone else’s negligence, you can share too much information.

Due to advances in social media, insurance companies and other agencies have begun to investigate and audit social media uses. Therefore, it is extremely important to not post details, photographs or comments about your incident or any activity that could interfere with your claim on any social media venues, blogs or consumer commenting websites. Such venues can include, but are not limited to: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, Yelp, etc. THIS TYPE OF INFORMATION WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU AT A LATER DATE.

We have witnessed occasions where social media postings have been used against the posting party to the detriment of his or her case.

Law Offices of Adrienne Blocker, PLLC, is not advising that you delete your account(s) or to remove any pictures, materials, or information that you may have previously posted.  In fact, we are specifically advising you to not delete any existing pictures, material, or information from any existing social media account.  Rather, Law Offices of Adrienne Blocker, PLLC, is instructing you to simply refrain from posting any pictures, material, or information that may potentially harm your case.
