Social networking sites have dramatically changed the way people meet and fall in love – many say for the better. But as our lives become increasingly digital, some virtual paper trails are coming back to haunt us. According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers 81% its members have used or faced evidence pulled from Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other social networking sites. Facebook holds the distinction of being the unrivaled leader for online divorce evidence. Have you gone through a divorce and posted about it? Might the legal ramifications of over-sharing change your online habits?
