Social Networks

Figuring out how people are connected is a crucial part of most forensic investigations, and social networks present forensic investigators with new opportunities and challenges in tracing social connections.

Specialized software tools, such as Social Network Harvester (SNH) from Freezingdata Gmbh (Germany) help forensic investigators piece together information distributed across the social media landscape. SNH has been engineered to address the opportunities and challenges associated with the tasks of collecting, analyzing, and visualizing social media information.

The Social Network Harvester (SNH) is an automated, investigative solution for law enforcement agencies, management consultancies, law firms, detective agencies or others who collect and evaluate data from social networks.
