Social Media Filtering & Verification of social media
Organisations who do public interest work, are hit hard by the big changes in open source intelligence tools, especially LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. This workshop/bootcamp helps you to survive "The Day After" and helps you to maximize your research results in filtering social media. The workshop in Amsterdam is open for news media, police, law enforcement, NGO's, human right watchers - so everyone who is working in the interest of the general public.
Open source intelligence (OSINT) investigators lost some of their best tools, see the interviews I gave to NBC, Buzzfeed, ABC News and VICE. This workshop shows you what is still possible with some creative thinking and editing links in the tools that now fail on you. The course is very practical and hands on.
We'll work with some amazing, real cases that seem impossible to solve at first. So what will you learn? Filtering of social media & how to verify social media. How to strategically rephrase your research question into the rigid logic of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. The workship location is in a hotel near the airport Schiphol. You can fly in and get a free shuttle bus to the workshop location. If you want to stay overnight (1,2 or 3 nights), we offer a great rebate on the hotel, just click on Tickets for an overview.
