Approximately 90% of organizations in the United States now archive their corporate email communication, including files and attachments. The same number, 90%, use social media, be it networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, image sharing channels such as Instagram and Snapchat, video platforms such as Youtube or Vimeo, or social blogging and community websites like Medium, Reddit or Quora. Internally, enterprise social media tools and IM platforms help employees to solve business problems more efficiently and improve collaboration and communication. They include in-house intranet software as well as various third-party social media platforms such as Slack and Skype. With that it mind, it comes as a huge surprise to learn that only 2-7% of enterprises archive their social media content.
Social Media Archiving Has Become Mandatory
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) were amended in 2015, and with changes to Rule 34(a) the term electronically stored information (ESI) was broadened to include not only email, but also all other forms of electronic documents and information, including “writings, photographs, sound recordings, images and other data…” In other words, although social media has become an explosive business resource that we all use and love, all corporate activity on social media channels including posts, comments, tweets, photos or direct messages must now be archived and made retrievable for future reference, compliance or litigation purposes. This is especially important for organizations that belong to highly regulated industries such as finance, brokerage, education, healthcare or government.If your organization belongs to a regulated industry, social media archiving is no longer a matter of choice.
