Social Media, Instant Messaging, Webmail & E-Discovery: How the Internet Boosts the Power of ESI



Social networking and cloud storage sites are full of useable information. They can establish
who knew what about an incident or issue in question, and when they knew about it. They can
help attorneys determine links between people and information, and they can go beyond a
company's data archives to provide more context to a case.
However, social networking sites also carry risks. It is easy for subjects under investigation to
change or even remove their status updates, images and video, messages and other
electronically stored information. The proliferation of cloud computing means that company
data may have more custodians and be harder to preserve.
