ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of online social networks in claims investigations and the defense of a litigation, including sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and MySpace. These social media sites have become a digital treasure that can exhibit incriminating photos and online admissions that undermine a claimant's case. Courts can compel litigants to turn over content from their publicly viewed social media profiles.
