Social Media Law Issues Will Grow Proportionately With Social Media Use

According to the media tracking company, Nielson, Social Media usuage drastically increased this past August compared to a year earlier. This past August, 17 percent of all time spent on the internet was spent doing Social Media related activities compared to only 6 percent the prior August. I predict that as the use of social media grows so will the legal issues that confront its users and society. As with any new technology, it takes some time for the law to evolve and for legal standards to be developed.
