Social Media Investigations

Because people willingly put so much personal information online, social media are a key field for a private detective to investigate. The amount of information that can be gathered from a thorough search of a person’s social media is enormous. Because most people aren’t always careful about what they post – some people can be astonishingly sloppy – social media can often paint a comprehensive picture of where a person was, where the person is now – and with whom.

Businesses are not exempt from social media, either. Think only of Yelp: not only does a business paint a picture of itself on the service, but other people’s reviews can reveal much about what is happening with a company at a given time.

We’ve created our own special protocol for social media searches. We’re thorough and innovative in our approach: a professional social media search is a lot more than checking out someone’s Facebook page. (We do, of course, check Facebook – but we make an in-depth search of every corner of Facebook in which information a subject might be found.) We also can commit the time necessary to search long Instagram and Twitter accounts and to locate people on dating sites. As many people don’t want to get caught making a thorough study of someone’s social media presence, turning the job over to a private investigator ensures discretion.

Among the sites and services we search are:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Snapchat (repeated searches)
  • Linkedin
  • Yelp and other review sites
  • Dating sites (, okcupid, tinder, bumble, xmatch (on request), etc.)
  • Reddit
  • Tumblr

  • Social media can tell you a great deal about a subject, but you have to know where to look. You also have to be sure that you’re searching every one of a person’s online identities. With a private investigator, you’ll receive the kind of complete search most people have neither the time nor the energy to undertake. Global Intelligence Bureau will provide you with exhaustive social media searches that go beyond the capabilities of the general public.
