Social Media evidences can be taken into consideration, subject to the fulfilment of the guidelines issued under Section 65B of the Evidence Act. Your husband will have to satisfy the Court regarding the genuineness of his claim.

Yes it can be used as evidence. Your lawyer will require to break those evidences during cross examination and also during arguments to bring to the notice of the presiding judge over the authenticity of the produced evidence which is fake as per your mentioned statements above.

If they are fake you first challenge the veracity of it. He will have to provide certification to authenticate electronic evidence.Few screenshots anyway alone cannot prove extra marital affair ,secondly even if true does not give him a right to be violent towards you.
