Social media is more than just Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. It includes message boards, Yelp!, Angie’s List, Urban Spoon, blogs, comment sections on media outlets, and so much more. Social media can be a breeding ground for libel or other similar claims, such as invasion of privacy. Consider these recent examples:

  • In 2012, lawyers for golfer Phil Mickelson secured a judgment from a Quebec court to force cable giant Videotron S.E.N.C. to disclose the identity of an online heckler.
  • This year, the wife of a Western Michigan football booster filed a defamation suit against three posters on a Western Michigan message board.
