Guerilla Research: Mining Social Networks

Carol Levitt, author of The Lawyer’s Guide to Fact Finding on the Internet (published by the ABA LPM Section) and The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet (published by IFL Press) will be co-presenting with her co-author of the aforementioned books, Mark Rosch at the ABA TechShow.  The title of their session is Guerilla Research: Mining the Social Networks and More.

I personally like anything “Guerilla” because it usually cuts to the chase.  The gist of this session is to not use Google to get your info on the Web, but to dig deep into social networking sites like facebook for background research and key information about the players in your case.

The session is scheduled for Friday, April 3 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Here’s the description.

There’s a lot more to online research than just Google. Learn how to find out about people, places, and organizations with specific sites and tools that will help you lift the veil on hard to find information. Social networking sites, public records tools, and government resources are full of facts that can help you learn more about current and prospective clients, opposing parties and counsel, witnesses and other key players in your cases.
