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.
