How Social Media Is Used in Service of Process

It seems like about every other month something about social media is hitting the headlines. Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, have become not only commonplace, but almost a requirement for being part of society. As such, it is no wonder that it is starting to be adopted for new and interesting purposes.

One of the things that most people do not think about is that it can be very easy to track someone down using just the information on their social media profiles. If someone has moved, changed jobs, or otherwise made it difficult to serve them, their social media accounts could give clues about where to find them. 

Most people have at least their city and state shown to the public with their profile so that they can be found by others. Others who leave all of their personal information public may display their position and place of employment. LinkedIn accounts will definitely include this information. Once you have either of those pieces of information, locating the individual to get them served becomes a piece of cake.

There is another surprising way that social media is being used in service of process. Whenever someone cannot be located by any normal method or means, the judge may offer you an alternative service method. Usually, this is a newspaper classified posting with specific information and length. However, with fewer newspapers selling worldwide and everything moving to a digital format, some judges across the nation have allowed for service through social media contact. However, no Florida judges have ordered this so far.
