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.

How to Use Social Media in Fraud Investigations

When it comes to investigating potential fraud, modern social media platforms can be a tremendously useful resource. The reason for this is simple: a lot of us are active on social media these days—and we tend to share more than less. At the end of Q1 2020, Facebook reported 1.73 billion daily active users and 2.6 billion monthly active users, with around half of all social media site visits in the United States going to Facebook. Add Instagram’s 500-million daily active users—not to mention the 500 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute!—and you’re left with a lot of potential digital evidence.
