Social Media Checks

Social media and social networking has grown exponentially since 2002, allowing greater access to information, connecting people on a global scale in ways we have never seen before. We are able to connect and communicate with people across borders with no restrictions. This has led to people having their lives documented in fine detail, online, for all to see. We no longer keep journals or diaries, we no longer have photo albums, and all of this is available at our fingertips, through our smart phones and computers.

With these complexities, businesses must address these challenges and mitigate the associated risks. Social media has the potential to cause immense and irrecoverable brand and reputational damage to both businesses and organizations. An individual’s social media behaviour and content can either contribute positively or negatively to a businesses and individuals brand.

This check analyses the candidate’s participation in all forms of Social Media – including Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Foursquare to name a few. It not only looks at the candidate’s propensity to make crude, racist or lude comments, display antagonistic behaviour etc but also gives an overview regarding interests, hobbies, internet behaviour and so on.
