It’s no secret that we have a tendency to over-share on Facebook, and now new statistics show that it’s being used as a source of evidence for a growing number of divorces.
Leeds-based law firm, Lake Legal have said that it was cited in more than a third (66 out of 200) of divorce cases they examined.
The firm’s managing partner, Lyn Ayrton, told MailOnline: ‘Social media provides an ongoing log of our lives. The sharing of written posts and pictures, often with geo-tagging, provides a record of activities that can be used in a court case.’
The law firm revealed that many of their cases revolved around the fact that people had used the site to track down and get back in touch with exes, or posted information that contradicted claims about their finances.
Aderton explains: ‘Often, if a partner refers to an impending bonus, a new job offer, or plans for a holiday, it may provide evidence that they are not telling the truth about their financial position. At the very least, it could call their credibility into question.’
She added: ‘Somebody said she was not in a relationship with anybody new but then posted a message inviting everybody to a housewarming party for her and her boyfriend.’
We imagine the latter would of got out even with just good old fashioned word of mouth. But this is further proof that if you’re up to no good, it’s best to keep it off of your newsfeed, or at least tighten your privacy settings.
