Lack of social media archiving creates legal minefield


"Through social media, businesses are creating vast amounts of uncontrolled content and risk legal action because of inadequate archiving and e-discovery systems.

Research from Osterman Research, commissioned by email and archiving managed service provider Bluesource, showed that only 6% of UK organisations archive social media content.

According to Forrester Research, most large organisations maintain at least 10 Facebook accounts, and many have more than 200. Also, 90% have a presence on Twitter.

Archiving is the process of moving inactive data from primary storage systems to systems and media more suited to long-term retention. The research revealed that only 20% of UK organisations could retain social media content in a way that could support them if legal action was taken against them in relation to it.”
