With 1.2 billion monthly active users on Facebook alone, it’s not surprising that social media networks can be a rich source of information for investigators. Whether it’s in a criminal case, corporate investigation, or you just want to know what someone is doing on Social Media. There is no limit to the amount of information that can be collected from Social Media sites. Because Americans spend more time on social media than any other major Internet activity, including email, social media information and evidence is plentiful. You just need to know how to get it.
