Social Media and Investigation

Your social footprint helps investigators know your patterns of behavior, closest confidants, places and persons of interest, and gives away little details about you that you may not have noticed you were exposing. A private investigator may look at the photos you post to see how active you are, and if that is counter to what you are claiming against injuries you sustained through workman's compensation.  

Utilizing Twitter and Facebook as sources of information is known as "open source intelligence," meaning no one owns the rights to the information as protected, if the information is unsolicited and unprotected by the user.
