Is Social Media considered a public record?

In the U.S., government social media is considered a public record in all 50 states. Government bodies, law enforcement agencies, and school systems are obliged to comply with open record laws. In some circumstances, social media is also considered a public forum.

Are screenshots enough to be compliant?

No, they are not. Manual processes are inefficient for capturing and searching records and often don’t suffice in court. Challenges with the frequency of capture, hidden/deleted/revised content, and lack of meta-data to prove the authenticity of records leave agencies with significant risks for social media record retention. Learn more about what constitutes social media archiving and why it matters for compliance.

Can’t I just ask the social media platform for my records if I need them?

No, social media networks were built to facilitate the online connection of billions of private citizens to one another. They are not built for, nor bound to, public records laws and have no legal obligation to retain records for you. Learn more about how social media archiving software is critical for compliance.
