Is Social Media considered a public record?
In the U.S., government social media is considered public record in all 50 states. Government bodies, law enforcement agencies and school systems have an obligation to comply with open record laws.
Are screenshots enough to be compliant?
No, they are not. Manual processes are inefficient for both capturing and searching records and often don’t suffice in court. Challenges with frequency of capture, hidden/deleted/revised content, and no meta-data to prove authenticity of records all leave agencies with significant risks for social media record retention.
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.
