What is Social Media Screening?

Social media screening is an automated, AI-driven pre-employment smart background check. It is based on the candidate’s digital profiles found on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok as well as other online public forums. 

Social media screening offers a deeper level of behavioral insight than background checks, driving records, or any other traditional method. Information found on social media offers HR professionals a current snapshot of a person’s attitude, habits, and behaviors. When used as part of the recruiting process, it offers recruiting teams a more complete idea of who the candidate really is. Ultimately, helping determine if a candidate is a right fit for the organization, or not.

Step 2: The Search

Our proprietary process combines machine learning technology and FCRA-trained human analysis to better understand an individual’s online risk profile. 

Based on the information you submitted for your candidates or employees, our platform is able to confirm their identity. It then scans publicly available data looking for problematic behavioral content. If adverse content is found, the platform organizes this information into a comprehensive report. 

Step 3: The Social Intelligence Report

In a matter of days, your report is ready and sent to you. The report provides context and detail about the data as well as screenshots of the flagged content. Going one step further, our process also includes an exclusive protected class safety feature, ensuring all irrelevant information is redacted – protecting parties from discrimination and bias.
