John G. Browning, Esq. of Thompson Coe has published The Lawyer’s Guide to Social Networking: Understanding Social Media’s Impact on the Law (Thomson Reuters West 2010). Here is a summary:
This product provides a comprehensive look at how social media is affecting the legal system. It examines the myriad ways in which information from sites like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter is being put to use in everything from criminal and family law matters to personal injury, employment, and commercial cases nationwide. The author illustrates how the pervasive social networking phenomenon is redefining traditional notions of jurisdiction, duty, service of process, and legal ethics while using actual trial- and appellate-level cases to analyze the discoverability and admissibility of social media evidence.
