In a poll conducted among American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML), who handle divorces and legal separations in the USA, 81 percent of 1,600 members said that they have seen a rise in the last five years in the number of cases using evidence from the Internet. Facebook was the main source of divorce and custody evidence, according to 66 percent of AAML members, followed by MySpace at 15 percent, Twitter at 5 percent.
