Social Media Evidence & Innovations
According to Statista.com in 2018, 2.62 billion of Internet users worldwide were social network users and these figures are expected to grow to 3.02 billion by 2021. In 2018, more than 77 percent of the United States population had a social media profile. Mobile device usage for social media has increased to 91% of social channel accesses in 2018 according to Marketing Profs. Many technology thought leaders believe social networking will displace traditional email as the leading communication medium. This presentation will provide a practical walkthrough of preservation of top social media sites and how to effectively utilize tools for evidentiary collection across the Web, PCs/desktops and smart devices. We will look at social media apps on smartphones and what digital evidence exists compared to what can be found on the cloud. We will also explore innovations in emoji/avatar Apps such as Bitmoji.

Kristi Hemmer. Social entrepreneur, sojourner, albanil, storyteller, do gooder, and teacher.Founder Kristi Hemmer lives and breathes “all lives have equal value.” Her muse is planting good, nurturing it, making it AWEsome, and seeing it bloom around the world. As an educator for more than 20 years, she saw firsthand awesome girls/women shrink in a classroom, a community, and worldwide; it made her mad enough to quit her six-figure job, travel the world learning about social entrepreneurship and the GIRLeffect, and start her own social enterprise: AWE (Academy for Women’s Empowerment). Ironically in the process, she realized her eight year old dream of being an author and having her own school that made girls better.
When Kristi is not coaching women, writing, or teaching, she is spreading good around the world out of her medium sized, black, The North Face duffle bag. She has been to all seven continents and 60 countries and is leading a retreat to El Salvador in February. Learn more here. (Gallery pics here?)
Kristi Hemmer has her M.Ed. in counseling, over 20 years in education as a teacher (preK- college), counselor, and principal, and her coaching certification from an ICF certified program.
