Social Media Search

Analyzes Publicly Available Online Information for Problematic Behavior

Social media searches provide vital information to assist employers in making sound hiring decisions by identifying job-relevant behaviors such as bigotry, sexism, and violence.

Our automated solution searches thousands of publicly available social media profiles, posts, likes and shares (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) to help companies ensure a safe workplace, avoid PR disasters, and preserve the integrity of your brand. Content will be searched and flagged according to the employer's defined set of criteria.
