Social Media searches

Excellent course that provides a base line of information for how to conduct searches on Social Media. Teaches the individual review this course the highlevel basics that are available and how and why to conduct basic searchs. I would recommend this for the person looking to understand the basics. Good starting point.

Well, I guess my rating is based off of expectation. This is a very basic course that appears to be tailored towards investigators that don't use the social media platforms themselves. The searches are common sense for normal users. Is there a Level 2 course? Something that involves data mining, use of, etc would be very helpful for those capable of the basics.
