The individual receives an email asking them to consent to a social media check being conducted. The email details the company requesting the report so that this individual is aware of why this report has been requested and by whom.

The individual then has to consent to share their social media account credentials with Social Media Check in order to grant access to each individual social media account.

Only when these consents for each platform have been received can a social media check report be conducted. If an individual doesn’t consent, the report cannot be conducted.

The Social Media Check platform distributes the report and the certificate to the person who requested it. The individual whose accounts have been checked can receive a copy of the report, but this would have to be done by the requestor manually.

Yes, providing the business who requested the report has shared it with the individual. 

The report contains links to content under the 7 key risk classifiers. This allows the business and the individual to click on the link, review the highlighted content and, if appropriate, for the individual to update the content or delete the post entirely. 

The business and/or individual then has the opportunity to buy a second report to do a final check if desired.

What our customers are saying

Our role is to protect and support our clients. We feel confident that with Social Media Checks service in place we now have that added level of security, ensuring that we are bringing the right people to The Maggie Oliver Foundation.

Maggie Oliver, The Maggie Oliver Foundation

The team at Social Media Check could not have done more for us – their service was not only extremely cost-effective for our needs, but their development team and customer service were among the most responsive I have ever experienced.

These checks are far more illuminating than any standard employment reference, and are absolutely the future of risk-mitigation when hiring high-profile members of staff or appointing Directors.

Leshia Hawkins CEO, Cricket Wales

Social Media Check have supported NYAS by enhancing our safer recruitment process through providing additional checks on top of the usual reference and enhanced DBS checks. This additional element of our recruitment process has added real value for NYAS as well as providing an extra layer of reassurance.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Ben Hart and his team at Social Media Check for any organisation involved in recruiting, but especially any organisations involved with providing a front line service to children, young people and vulnerable adults. The work they do should be a standard requirement of all recruitment drives.

Rita Waters GCE, National Youth Advocacy Service

The fact that Social Media Check obtains full consent for every platform means that my reports contain both public and private post findings.

This was a key requirement for us when looking at our sensitive end-user accounts.

Small Business MD, London

We love the fact that the end-user can be sent a copy of the Social Media Check report. They then have the option to clean-up their own social accounts before letting us know that they are ready for the final report to be generated.

This seemed to be a fairer way of working to us and it improved end-user buy-in to the whole process.

Talent Agency, North West

The output report is the best we have seen in the market. It clearly identifies the social platforms that have been checked and provides links to any offensive posts within the report.

This has been critical to allowing the end-user to clean up their accounts quickly and easily.
