Social Media: Instagram, Facebook, and More

Our robust Social Media search includes over 2 billion social profiles including:

  • 785 million Instagram profiles
  • 800 million Twitter profiles
  • 400 million Tiktok profiles
  • 17 million Strava profiles

Our Social Media Search includes web profiles, screen names, and social handles. Our advanced person search engine technology indexes the public Web and connects a URL to a person. Besides, our search engine matches social profiles through social connectivity, linking social profiles between friends, family, and colleagues. Social Media results may also include an image URL of profile images and other images that are related to the person.

Our Social Media search includes publicly accessible information from social media sites including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tiktok, Strava, and publicly viewable internet content via a search engine (i.e., Google, Bing, or Yahoo).

Non-public content is not searched. Personal credentials (username and password) are not asked for or required, and information accessible only with such personal credentials is not searched. Similarly, content that is only viewable from a non-public relationship or status with the subject (i.e., "Friend" or "Friend of Friend" on Facebook) is not searched.

Content searched includes copy and photographs.

Our Social Media and Username Search

When you register for a social media account, part of the enjoyment is coming up with a unique username. You can choose a spin on your actual name that reflects your interests or personality, but whatever you choose has to be unique.

Because of a username's unique nature, unlike a "real" name, a username search tool can be invaluable when you're trying to locate someone in particular. For example, if you search for a common name (i.e., Jim Smith), you might get hundreds of results. Otherwise, if you do a social profile search for a username such as @ j_smith1248, you'll only get one—the actual person who owns the account.

When you're looking to find someone online, a username search may not be the first thing on your mind, but it can be beneficial. Many people have at least one social media account, and the average person has several. As you read this, someone is signing up for a new social media account. If you know the person's social media username, you can find out more about them with a username search than their name.

There are many great uses for our Social Media Search.

Defend yourself against "catfishing" and other online scams. These bad actors have learned to play on people's emotions to get money and other things of value from their victims. If you suspect that the person you are chatting with online may not be who they say they are, use our Social Media Search to find out the truth.

Avoid online fraudsters. Online fraud cost U.S. consumers nearly two billion dollars last year. Before you decide to conduct business with an online seller—or share any personal information—use our social media/username search to learn more about who you are dealing with.

Learn more about your online dating partner. Being anonymous is great when you're sifting through online dating profiles, but once you're ready to talk and meet, it's smart to confirm the identity of your potential match. Trust? Of course. But, verify too. It's just the smart thing to do. Our social media/username search may be able to reassure you that the person you met online is, in reality, who they say they are.

How It Works

Enter the person's username exactly as it appears on the social media site. Our advanced people search engine sorts through nearly one billion records, including hundreds of social media sites, online chat rooms and forums, and online communities, to locate information associated with a particular username.

Instantly and confidentially, the social media information will be incorporated into your Comprehensive Report and all included at no additional cost.
