Forensic  of  Social Networking Activities: Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, etc.

Social Networking posts (Facebook, Linked In), Twitter posts, collaborative software activity, etc., are all potential sources of evidence and are all increasingly used in investigation and litigation as a means of providing subject movement mapping, establishing relationships, etc. Often erased emails, tweets, etc., can be recovered from servers, computers and mobile devices, so forensic options exist beyond what one can see in the in-box.

Types of Information Recoverable

The world of social networking has been expanding exponentially for the last few years. With social networks like Facebook facilitating users around the world to connect, play games and send messages, a full blown sub-culture has emerged. Facebook users commonly upload private pictures, post details of their daily lives and keep the world informed of their movements, thoughts, good deeds and indiscretions, all while building extremely detailed relationship maps.

It's more than just Facebook, LinkedIn maps relationships with professionals, with those relationships available to be viewed and dissected, as are Twitter "tweets" and a plethora of other open forums for discussion available today on the World Wide Web.

While this information is in abundance, it is also very fragile and can became tainted or lost with a single mouse click.
