Use of social media has exploded over the last decade. It seems we have gone from a time when social media was limited to an organized grouping of college students’ selfies to now, when everyone—and I mean everyone—has a Facebook page or an Instagram account. Now when you log onto your Facebook page, your “newsfeed” is filled with Aunt Betsy’s latest cat photos and a co-worker’s most recent political rant. Social media can be a great thing (who doesn’t like a good cat photo?), it allows people to share their experiences and stay in touch with long-distance friends and relatives in a way that used to be impossible. So, why does the use of social media matter in the context of your injury claim? Well, it could actually matter a lot. In my experience, nothing can tank a claim faster than an ill-timed and unfortunately worded Facebook post.
