Court Claims Now Available on Facebook?

Google Earth Takes Us to the Great Barrier Reef

The vast majority of us use at least one social media site, even if we only do so occasionally.  It could also be said that we use these sites for a variety of different reasons.  But would you serve a legal claim on someone using Facebook?

Most of us would agree that this is not the most logical or obvious method to use.  Nevertheless, according to a High Court judge in England, this is exactly what we can now do if the situation warrants it.

To be fair this has already happened several times in other countries, namely New Zealand and Australia.  Now the legal precedent has been set in England as well, after a High Court judge decided the only way to get in touch with a party in a case was to do so via Facebook.

So are we going to see more of this in the future?  Will we be likely to log into our Facebook account and see that we are required to take part in a court case?  This is a landmark case and so it has rightly received major headlines and column inches.  Whether it will become commonplace in England has yet to be determined.  One would suspect it would only happen when someone cannot be contacted in any other way.  But it must surely rank as one of the most interesting ways to use Facebook that has come to the fore thus far.  It makes you hesitant to check your own status.
