The current research focuses on the control of a communication medium that has ushered in a new age of communication pace. With the advent of social media, the internet, which has impacted many aspects, has revolutionized the information age. In certain respects, the emergence of the internet was unlike the emergence of any other set of creative communications technology. It introduced new features that not only shattered a slew of barriers between personal and mass communication, but also reversed a centuries-old mass media paradigm. The new communications movement has empowered content consumers to become content creators themselves. User produced content has grown from humble beginnings, such as the opportunity to post text or photographs on personal web sites, to an extraordinary global influx of mixed original and reused content that exists in a variety of ways and formats. This today include video sharing, social networking, blogging, and tweeting, among other things. It's been dubbed "social media" as a whole. When opposed to other types of advertising, social media has its own set of characteristics. This paper focuses on how social media influences or facilitates the procuring of evidence in the judicial system. Because of its pace and reach, once material is released, it is instantly accessible to a possible global audience. Social media is used by people of all ages and professions. Not just is social media altering the way we interact.
