The Case for Working with SMI: Part Five

SMI has partnered with Ethan Wall of Social Media Law & Order to produce a series of informational videos discussing the importance of social media evidence for legal professionals. In the fifth video of the series, Ethan discusses how legal professionals can utilize SMI’s investigation & preservation products to access social media evidence which isn’t publicly available.

How do you access social media content if it’s behind privacy settings?

Investigations conducted SMI’s analysts only include publicly available social media content. How can legal professionals use this information to gain access to content which is behind a user’s privacy settings?

  • Locate the relevant parties’ social media profiles using SMI’s Deep Report.
  • Preserve all publicly available social media content using SMI’s Export product.
  • Attach the preserved social media content to a motion to compel. This will illustrate to the court that content relevant to your case is likely available behind privacy settings.
