The Importance Of Social Media in Investigations

Social Media is playing an increasingly important role in our daily lives.  As our use of these platforms rises, so does our exposure to risk and the public availability of personal data.

Sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest offer a cornucopia of information to experienced private investigators.  We are able to use advanced searching techniques and software to view archived data, search page posts, photo comments and boards to reveal locations individuals have visited, assets they maintain and people and companies they associate with.  These types of information can be extremely useful in background investigations, asset searches, pre-employment background checks, custody and divorce matters and all manner of intellectual property investigations.
