Social Media Intelligence Consultant

Today, social media is everything. Over night on a small hog farm in Indiana a young boy can make a video paying a flute and upload it to and 10 million people around the world will view his video. At the same time in Iraq, ISIS posts a video of a journalist being murdered. What do these 2 events have in common? They both used the Internet to reach millions of people within minutes.

Today more people are using the Internet to communicate to the world their news, political views, relationship advice, businesses ideas, career choices, religious views, etc. There are over 2 billion people who use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram from around the world. These 2 billion people are not just kids, businesses, bloggers, family and friends, but criminals as well. Companies use Social Media to check on new applicants; colleges use Social Media to look up scholarship candidates, and law enforcement uses Social Media to track suspects, missing persons and even gang activity.
