This module will provide investigators with an overview of current trends within the realm of social
networking to include social networking apps that are currently popular and how social networking
has evolved to a mobile interface. Specific attention will be paid to highlighting the potential
investigative leads that can be garnered from Social Networking sites and possible digital evidence
that can be secured in criminal investigations. E-commerce sites (backpage.com, craigslist.com, etc.)
that contribute to the current problems with human trafficking will be addressed as well as dating sites
that can be used to target potential stalking victims.
