Social Media Intelligence [SOCMINT]
A collection of online resources and tools to assist with SOCMINT investigations on a wide range of platforms.
- EffectGroup One of the best tools for searching people by username, email address, real name or phone number and build a dossier on your target. Searches social media sites, data breaches, documents and much more. Requires a paid subscription after first search.
- Export Comments Allows you to easily export comments and other details to .xls format from various social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, VK, Twitch, Discord and Steam. Free use if limited to 100 comments, a paid subscription is required to remove this limitation.
- Synapsint Described as the "Unified OSINT research tool". Scrapes data from other sources, combines the results, then displays it using a simple interface. Search for domain, IP address, IPv6 address, ASN, SSL certs, Google accounts, email address, phone number, Twitter handle or Bitcoin address.
- Social-Searcher Allows to search for content in social networks in real-time and provides deep analytics data. Users can search without logging in for publicly posted information on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, Reddit, Flickr, Dailymotion and Vimeo.
- Alternative Social Platform Search A Google CSE from OSINT Combine that searches across alternative and "non-mainstream" social platforms and boards including Parler, Gab, Minds, BitChute, DLive.tv, Rumble, JustPaste.it, WrongThink.net & 8kun.
- PhantomBuster A cloud-based data extraction tool designed to scrape useful data from Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and more. Allows data export to CSV and JSON formats. Requires a paid subscription.
- BACKMOJI The Bitmoji avatar history enumerator, simply enter a Bitmoji ID, version (usually the number 5), and a maximum value. Press the “Grab Images!” button and your browser will make “maximum value” requests for the images of that user’s Bitmoji.
- UnfURL If you have any URLs of interest from Discord, you can potentially extract additional timestamp info. Each Discord ID (for user, channel, server, or file attachment) has an embedded timestamp that shows when that object was created. This tool will help you extract them.
- Discord Snowflake to Timestamp A "snowflake" is essentially a unique ID for a resource which contains a timestamp. You can copy the snowflake from a message, user, channel, etc by right clicking on them in Discord. This will let you check the age of a Discord account or server.
- Discord History Tracker Lets you save chat history in your servers, groups, and private conversations, and view it offline. Be careful, as this tool technically goes against Discord's ToS, so its possible that you could get your account banned!
- DisTools Enter a server ID and view general information about the server and its users. Will give you an invite code as well if available. Not the best tool, does not seem to work with some Discord servers.
- OSINT Combine Facebook Tools A simple way to quickly search for multiple keywords from a list or open mutual friends for multiple profiles at the same time. It simply loads a new tab for each word or ID searched to create efficiency when working from a list of search terms or IDs, it does not do any advanced searching or automation.
- Facebook Dangerous Individuals and Organizations List A leaked internal document from Facebook that contains their list of dangerous individuals and groups. Worth saving. Archived copies available here (Wayback) and here (archive.today). Original .pdf available [PDF]here. Archived copy available here (Wayback).
- Facebook Ads Library Search all the ads currently running across Meta technologies. To find an ad, search for keywords or an advertiser. The Ad Library also archives ads about social issues, elections or politics for 7 years. Find details about these ads like who paid for them and who the advertiser was targeting. Requires log in.
- MetaHashtags Find all related Instagram posts via hashtags with analytics and metrics. Allows you to sort hashtags and export them to a list. They also offer a paid subscription that includes additional tools.
