Customer: replied 11 months ago.
that chat can confirm that I have not done something.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
is there anybody?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

Well, it depends.

On the face of it, that isn't evidence of anything.

Facebook entries can be evidence. If it is deleted then the evidence is lost unless, of course, there is a screen saving.

But it does need to be relevant evidence. Facebook entries that to contain anything probative are quite commonly used.

To be wholly honest though, offences on Facebook solely tend not to be prosecuted basically because it isnt the best use of public money to investigate comments on Facebook. Entries on Facebook that evidence a more serious offence can be used though.

Can I clarify anything for you?
