OSINT/Social Media Investigations

In the course of conducting an investigation or simply due diligence, it would be unwise and even neglectful to overlook the vast supply of intelligence found in social media and other open sources. Anyone may be able to find a Facebook Account and look through the items posted, but a true OSINT researcher doesn't stop there. Much more information can be found by someone trained in the specific area of OSINT, not only because they will know significantly more search methods than the untrained person, they know that methods change rapidly and workarounds are found and shared within the OSINT training community. Collection methods can also be important, in order to ensure that what you have collected can be used as evidence if needed. Of course, Facebook is the largest social media platform, but Twitter, Instagram, blogs, news articles, and many other sources should always be thoroughly and competently searched for actionable information as well as material that can help an investigator conduct a thorough interview.
