The Sedona Conference Releases Second Edition of the “Primer on Social Media”

The Sedona Conference® and its Working Group 1 on Electronic Document Retention & Production (WG1) has released the Public Comment Version of The Sedona Conference Primer on Social Media, Second Edition.


The first edition of the Primer on Social Media was published in 2012 and has proven to be a useful resource on various information governance and litigation issues, as it established a practical approach for addressing the corporate use and management of social media. Since 2012, however, there has been a proliferation of new messaging technologies and business applications, in addition to major evolution in “traditional” social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. There have also been significant developments in the law addressing social media and in the rules of discovery, evidence, and professional responsibility.
