Social networking sites are rapidly becoming a standard method of communication for millions of users.
Attorneys have sought to introduce evidence from social networking sites, including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and other popular sites.
Authentication is a prerequisite to the admission of evidence at trial. Websites are different than other types of electronic evidence because users create individual profile pages.

Questions of who accessed and used the social networking site may arise at trial.
