Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and a host of other social media platforms have become an integral part of daily life for many people. Researchers say that we have an innate desire to share information about our lives with others. Roughly 80 percent of posts listed on social media outlets involve simple comments about a person's recent activities or daily experiences. With the ease of access to post a comment at a moment's notice, many people do not think twice about how the post may be perceived.

The case involved a man who was seriously injured at work by a defective product. The man's case was dismissed at the district court level because the judge concluded as a matter of law that the man's injury was not foreseeable to the product manufacturer.
