Defamation & social media
Ireland’s defamation laws were not written with social media in mind. However, the nature of defamation is undoubtedly changing with the rise of social media.
Social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter are making it all too easy for people to make damaging and misleading comments.
Given the viral nature of the internet, it is no surprise that comments made online have formed the basis of many recent defamation proceedings. It is important to remember that social media platforms are public domains, and the comments you make can have potentially expensive consequences.
