Social Media Has Made Private Investigators More Powerful Than Ever

Worldwide, there are more than one billion active Facebook users. Some research shows that a solid 80% of Americans have a social media profile. With so many people voluntarily offering up information about themselves, private investigators (PIs) have more power than ever to find someone. Trust Keck Investigation Service in Tampa to uncover the information you need with the assistance of social media.

Instant Updates and Location-Specific Information

When posting updates online, users have the option to highlight their location as a way to show places they’ve been. These updates are instant and time-stamped, so if someone posts that they are visiting a certain restaurant or bar in Tampa, a PI could hop in his or her car and run into them in there.

Private investigators use social media to gather information about individuals as part of background checks. If you are looking to hire a new employee or take on a childcare professional, you want to make sure that they are who they say they are. There is a lot about a person that a resume or application does not cover. With just a name, a PI can find a social media profile and gather information about a person. This valuable information may include their location, where they work, where they have visited, their age, and more.

How Social Media Has Changed How Private Investigators Uncover Information

Traditionally, private investigators have relied on in-person conversations, canvassing neighborhoods, knocking on doors, and making phone calls to get information. However, with the availability of information now available online, whether through social media, online white pages, or other details published publicly, PIs have more to work with. This not only helps to improve their services and ability to locate people and uncover information but also to provide Tampa clients with the help they need faster.
