Social Media Investigations: Targeting 101, 60 minutes, 1 CEU
Participants will learn how to discover intelligence by investigating popular social media platforms and search engines as well as gain knowledge of new social media platforms on the horizon. During the training, you will review social media pages, learn how hashtags and images can play a role in a case, and identify further leads. Participants will learn how to open every aspect of social media to explore where key information can be hidden or overlooked. You will identify which search engine to use, when to use it, and what results you should expect from each by conducting hands-on advanced internet and social media searches. We will also evaluate and review several free and fee-based resources on the market for locating unique information and monitoring social media. Focus will be on popular platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and Instagram, among others.
Upon completion of the course, field investigators will be able to
Conduct social media investigations using specialized search engines
Monitor social media platforms as well as personal and company pages
Conduct a CARA Analysis: Characteristics, Associations, Reputation, and Affiliations.
All participants will receive handouts on concepts and investigative techniques.
