Editor’s Note: The Verification Handbook for Investigative Reporting is a new guide to online search and research techniques to using user-generated content and open source information in investigations. Published by the European Journalism Centre, a GIJN member based in the Netherlands, the manual consists of ten chapters and is available for free download. We’re pleased to reprint below chapter 3, by Internet research specialist Paul Myers.
Valuable techniques for any online student or teacher! The section on advanced social media searches on Facebook and LinkedIn got me searching and tinkering again.
