Please check out my blog post on the Gibbons E-Discovery Law Alert. It’s called How Useful is Facebook’s “Download Your Information” Feature in E-Discovery? Here is a taste:
“In October 2010, Facebook announced a new Download Your Information (“DYI”) feature, billed as ‘an easy way to quickly download to your computer everything you’ve ever posted on Facebook and all your correspondences with friends: your messages, wall posts, photos, status updates and profile information.’ …But, how effective is the DYI feature as a discovery tool? And, is there any way to be sure that the adversary is not hiding any information?”
