Do you understand the potential legal consequences of what you post on social media? Lynn and Brown Lawyers @lynnbrownlawyer shared an interesting blog post this week detailing recent defamation cases bought before the courts relating to material posted on social media. The number of defamation cases has significantly increased and the courts have been willing to award damages on many occasions. To help limit the likelihood of a defamation case being raised against you, it is wise to have a solid social media policy in place for your business so that your team is aware what is appropriate content to post and share.
