in the best video. We went over the search engines with a couple of Google demos, and in this video we will say something about social networks. Actually give you a basic understanding how fast changing they are in the ocean context.
This is, for me the toughest chapter, because if I mentioned any of the tools and techniques now, tomorrow, maybe they will be unavailable or irrelevant tools. And so I decided to give you some basic understanding about them. I made a list of the most popular social networks out there.
The only one that I personally like Islington. The first on the list is, of course, Facebook. As the biggest one,
I would like to share with you a fun Saif act to illustrate how big it is.
Did you know that Facebook removed three Boeing 39 billion fake accounts from October 2018 to March 2019? Ah, fun fact of think about.
Besides the fake accounts, one of the biggest features for the O's and community that was removed by Facebook in 2019 was the graph search functionality. That feature allows you to find information about your network or friends by using a natural language search. For an example. You could type
my friends who loves King
in the Facebook search box, and you would get a list of people who indicated the day a lot. But skiing. Now we're more focused on the available search filters and playing with a You are else to try to acquire those that information. Next. I would like to mention Twitter,
which is a little better if you look at it from a nose in perspective.
I would emphasize the ability to get the user's location through a tool like tweet map, which we mentioned in the previous module. Also, Twitter has the ability to do searches via the search operators, so encourage you to check them out. Next. Islington, which is, as I mentioned, my favorite social network
Onley because it is a business network.
At least it is designed to be this way, because I see all the time people who put Facebook like content there. Regarding the tools that we recommend checking out the scraping kind of tools that are available for Lincoln.
Those stools literally scrape data from Lincoln and give you the possibility to search the results As you know, when you are logged into LinkedIn and you view someone's profile, that person will find out who viewed them. And I would like to share a cool tip how to look at someone's linked in profile anonymously,
which I have learned from the notes and colleague at those and curious that camp.
This lengthen information is in regard. Onley toe the publicly available profile details that the target person shared, intentionally or unintentionally.
Here we are again in our sick browser. We need toe acts of the profile lank via Google Search,
and I will take myself as an example. So go to Google.
Search for the dinner shortage, lengthen profile,
And as you can see, we're unable to look at the profile without Lincoln bothering us to sign in or to register.
Then go back to the Google results,
copy the profile link
and then go to the Ghouls Mobile friendly Tester Page,
which is located on the search that

Wait for the results
on the right side to take the HTML code off the linked in profile
and as a final step, go to the website code.
or to any similar side that enables you to check your HTML code life.
There are more than a few of them out there,
as you can see in the Left column, called HTML Input

in the right column is the linked in profile.
As you can see, at least on mine,
you can get all kinds of fearful about me or about your target
back to our lesson slide after lengthen. I would like to mention Instagram where you will be forced to do a lot of Google Dorking, but there are some interesting services, like stock fast dot com, which allows it to display followers and friends inside the static. U R l
or there is an INSTAGRAM service that lets you download instagram stories on story, sig dot com
and those of you who are familiar with instagram stories, you know that they disappeared 24 hours after they have been boasted.
Next is Snapchat, which, as a no sent Resource is a bit tricky, since its content is set to auto destruct after a specific period of time.
Here is an interesting tool from Snapchat on the site map dot Snapchat dot com to you, the locations off snap content around the world. And also you can always use Google Dorking for your Snapchat research.
Last on my list is Tic Tac, which is insanely becoming popular. At this moment. I have encountered a few tools that search for user names or hashtags, but they do not last long. One of the tools is listed in this slide.
In the end, the best bet is on Google Dorking and playing with the tick talks you are else. In this video, we made a quick overview off social networks with some recommendations off tools that you can use for your old sent investigations.
The best way would be to search for a specific social network with the word Oh, something Google. And in the next video, we'll cover emails and user names, So see you there
