Social media is a great way to tell your friends and family what you are up to. What many people don't realize is that social media is very useful to attorneys and law enforcement who are conducting investigations as well. When you share information on social media websites, it's pretty hard to keep your information confidential to only you and your friends. Using basic accounts, attorneys can easily investigate and find individuals who they need to serve papers to.
Your Social Media Profile is Not Completely Private
When you share pictures on social media, or you are tagged in a picture, it's pretty easy to find you. No matter how many privacy settings you turn on, the general public can probably find some information about you by searching social media. With the majority of adults enjoying social media today, it is easy to find out information on almost anyone if you have some investigation ability.
When a Person Doesn't Want to be Found
Hiding in a world where there is an inundation of technology is almost impossible. While some individuals who absolutely don't want to be located can hide by not using social media at all, this is not generally the trend. Many people think they are smarter than the investigators, thinking they can still be on social media without being found. A good attorney can locate an individual they are trying to serve papers to by searching on social media websites.
Investigating individuals has become easier with technology. Social media has opened up a wide network for lawyers and law enforcement officials to search through no matter what is being investigated. Social media information can be gathered and used to find an individual, see what they are doing from day to day, and figure out where they might be next.
