National Archives & Records Administration Selects PageFreezer for Social Media Archiving

We’re pleased to announce that after bidding on an exciting project among other competitors in the social media archiving space, we have been chosen as the archiving provider for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) - the nation’s record keeper.

National Archives and Records Administration

In September 2017, NARA issued an RFP seeking the most capable partner to archive over 140 social media accounts. The expectation included real-time archiving of various social media networks, collection of the complete social media conversations including photos, videos and metadata, powerful full-text search functionality, advanced rules-based retention scheduling, and data export capabilities to WARC for long term preservation.

Our RFP response highlighted the various strengths and top features of our archiving software, our years of experience archiving active pages with high capacity content, and the flexibility and affordability of our comprehensive software and service. After a long and detailed process, we are very much looking forward to working with the nation’s record keeper.

Social Media Evidence Spoliation and Preservation

No case better illustrates the risks of social media spoliation than Lester v. Allied Concrete Company. The plaintiff had lost his wife in a tragic vehicle accident and was suing for wrongful death. Unfortunately, some Facebook photos came to light that his lawyer was afraid would prejudice the case, and he consequently told his client to delete them. “We do not want blow ups of other pics at trial,” an email from the law firm read, “so please, please clean up your Facebook and MySpace!”
