Our Social Media Specialists are trained on multiple software platforms to search, analyze, capture and report. Many times the social network user name is not the same as the individual's name. Knowing where to look and how to cross reference social media information is critical for fitting the puzzle pieces together for each investigation. 

Do criminals want social media likes so badly that they will incriminate themselves? Apparently so. Last week a cocaine dealer’s student girlfriend helped police bust a major drug ring by bragging about her luxury lifestyle on Instagram...

Social Media Investigations 

Surface Web. Deep Web. Dark Web.

What's the difference and why does it matter? 

As more and more false alarms are popping up regarding school shootings and bomb threats, the FBI gets proactive in its defense of such action. Anyone thinking of pulling one of these hoaxes ought to think twice before doing so...

The Surface Web accounts for about 4% of searchable information. "Okay Google, please find Jane Doe from NY for me please." This search is a great example of someone finding surface information on an individual. Sure, you may find Jane Doe's Facebook page, or see that she has an Instagram account and you may be able to pull up images of Jane. But what about those accounts that don't look like they belong to Jane but are actually linked to her? What about those legal documents or reports that don't necessarily surface with your search?

Medical Records, Legal Documents, Scientific Reports, Multiple Social Media Profiles, Academic Information, Subscription Information, Competitor Websites, Financial Records, Government Resources and Organization-Specific Responsibilities are just a few items that we include in our social media report. This is called the Deep Web and it accounts for nearly 90% of all pertinent data.  

Anything beyond the Deep Web is considered the Dark Web. The Dark Web is only accessible through specific browsers and accounts for about 6% of individual investigations. Deep Web technologies have no involvement with the Dark Web. This can include Drug Trafficking, Private Communications, Political Protests, Illegal Information and TOR Encrypted sites.
