Facebook "Likes" have a Day in Court

What do you think about when you click "like" on a Facebook post? How about a page or business?  Did you ever think it might come back to haunt you?  Well, there is always that chance.

According to the article some believe it is a statement, others, like the judge, don't believe it is.  Marcus Messner, a journalism and mass communications professor at Virginia Commonwealth University who specializes in social media, said it was likely the matter would have to be settled by a higher court. "Going to a candidate's Facebook page and liking it in my view is a political statement. It's not a very deep one, but you're making a statement when you like a person's Facebook page," Messner said.
