Overview

Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat, Twitter, Yelp, YouTube and other social media sites continue to transform not only the daily lives of consumers, but also how companies interact with consumers. This has been particularly true during the pandemic; never has it been more important for corporations to use effectively social media and mobile apps in order to engage and interact with home-bound customers and potential customers.

However, along with the exciting marketing and other engagement opportunities presented by social media comes challenging legal issues.
