The Social Medium: Why the Authentication Bar Should Be Raised For Social Media Evidence


This article is the first publication in Temple Law Review Online, a new platform for publishing scholarly works that are shorter than the traditional law review article, involve time-sensitive topics, or directly respond to materials published in Temple Law Review’s printed issues. We are excited to present the inaugural writing on a fitting topic: the intersection of modern Internet culture and traditional laws of Evidence. Professor Miller uses recent examples of “social media evidence” to argue that, given the current technological and social climate, a more stringent authentication standard must be developed and used.
