According to the Pew Research Center, roughly eight-in-ten online Americans (79%) now use Facebook, a 7-percentage-point increase from a survey conducted at a similar point in 2015. Social media has even more traction in adolescents. As of 2016, daily social media usage of global internet users amounted to 118 minutes per day, up from 109 daily minutes in the previous year according to Many technology thought leaders believe social networking will displace traditional email as the leading communication medium. This presentation will provide a practical walkthrough of preservation and archiving of top social media sites and how to effectively utilize tools for evidentiary collection across the Web. We will discuss strengths and drawbacks of different approaches of data collection. New technologies in social media such as Location-Based Social Intelligence, facial recognition and live broadcasting will be discussed and the impact on cases and document retention.

With the continued explosion of social networking and use across both businesses and consumers, it is imperative that e-discovery and records management professionals understand the most optimal commercially available tools for data preservation and archiving. A key objective of this presentation is to understand what other types of communication may be available at an organizational level.
