Social media intelligence

Social media intelligence (SOCMINT) refers to the techniques and technologies that allow someone to monitor social media networking sites like Facebook, Youtube, Instagram or Twitter.

SOCMINT includes monitoring of content, such as messages or images posted, and other data, which is generated when someone uses a social media networking site. This information involves person-to-person, person-to-group, group-to-group, and includes interactions that are private and public.
