With SocialDiscover™, our social media research service, we exhaustively research the social media activity and attitudes of litigants, claimants, witnesses or other subjects. Facebook posts, YouTube videos, tweets – any of these can reveal information that conventional research cannot. With over 3.7 billion active social media users worldwide, an enormous, powerful collection of insight and intel is now at your fingertips.
In addition to social media data, we also capture information from public sites and databases to uncover details about bankruptcies, criminal history, involvement in litigation, professional licenses, incorporation filings and other publicly available data that may relate to the issues in your case.
What can you uncover about litigants, claimants, witnesses and other subjects?
Social preferences and viewpoints. Political or other relevant affiliations. Attitudes. Involvement in litigation. And much more relevant information. Social media postings are abundant, as the average user posts seven items per day. The depth and strategic value of this source of data is unmatched. And social media is often the only place this knowledge emerges. We’ll help find it. With coverage of top social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube and more, plus public databases, we can uncover pertinent information enabling you to make informed, critical decisions.
When you need to make critical assessment, such as the veracity of a litigant, or simply need additional insight and perspective on a case, leave no stone unturned with SocialDiscover™.
Our Social Media Research and Data Aggregation Process
Step 1: Intake
It’s quick and easy to start a new social media research project. We will provide you with access to our secure online intake form to submit all relevant litigant, claimant or other subject information. Upon client request, our team will contact you to confirm all details, gather relevant information and kick off the project.
Step 2: Social Media Research & Metadata Preservation
Our team of industry and technology experts conducts extensive research across multiple social media platforms and publicly available records to help build a collection of case-relevant information.
Our research also preserves critical metadata, an important step to ensure the integrity of social media postings. Metadata refers to “data that gives information about other data.” In the case of social media posts, metadata such as time/date stamps and IP addresses, is important in the event a party deletes their post or profile. Capturing metadata is not possible through a simple screen shot or printout, which is why it’s important to work with a partner who has the expertise and resources to ethically and competently collect and preserve this information.
Step 3: Delivery of Findings
When the research phase is complete, we will provide you with a detailed report of our findings, complete with extensive date and time stamped screenshots.
