Now, every time you think about Facebook you get stressed out and are ever so close to just shutting it down. This is all too common for small businesses (and even large) who don’t have someone on staff dedicated to social media and communications. At this time, Facebook is the only social media platform that allows you to backdate new posts. If you’ve ever scheduled a Facebook post for the future, backdating is similar… It can cover your behind if you forgot a major holiday, national event, or employee’s birthday.

Although backdating is generally permissible under the common law, a court will not give effect to backdating where the parties backdated the contract to mislead a third party.
