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.
