Many people in today’s world are active on some form of social media, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc..

In the technology driven world we live in it is very important to protect yourself on these varying social media networks. For example, if you have been charged with a crime, you need to make certain that your social media profiles are private and not open to public view.

Police and prosecutors have become more adept and more willing to investigate people and their actions through posts and photos on their social media profiles. This information is most likely going to be admissible in court and could assist the prosecutors in securing a conviction.

This is why it is very important to understand the privacy settings on your social media. Use them correctly to avoid situations in which you could incriminate yourself.
