Three Ways Private Process Servers Use Social Media
Private process servers have a job that is sometimes very difficult. Most people do not want to be the subject of court proceedings, and they will do everything they can to avoid service of process to stop the case in its tracks. When this happens, a private process server has to use all of the tools at his or her disposal. With technology advancing and social media all the rage, that includes social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more.
Check Social Media Accounts
You can learn a lot from someone’s social media account, depending on the social media platform and how they have set their privacy settings. For example, if they have moved, you can often learn their current city and state from their social media profiles. You may also be able to find out what their job is, where they are employed, and what time of day they work.
Check Accounts of Friends
Often process servers can check the accounts of friends of the individual that needs to be served. Chances are at least one of their friends will have a social media account with public settings. If so, monitoring and filtering those posts and profiles can give you some insight into the activities of the person you are looking for.
Social Listening Tools
There are social listening tools that you can use to track when someone posts or is mentioned online. These tracking tools are designed for business purposes, but process servers can also use them to get news of someone they are looking for. The tools send an alert when that person either posts or is mentioned.
