Frequently Asked Questions

How does the technology work?

At its core, Echosec is a web application that leverages location-based data to search for social media and other open source information. The base technology relies on a healthy mix of API requests directly to social media networks, as well as to third party information repositories. In less than a second, our service is capable of contacting all of the services we tap into, aggregating and normalizing their response.

Can you access private posts and accounts?

No, the results of a location search on Echosec only include publicly available and geo-tagged posts.
The results of a username search on Echosec also only includes the publicly available posts from the account. Echosec’s concern with international privacy legislation and system reliability has led to hosting our distributed data stores around the globe.

Can you add (insert new social media source here)?

Probably. We are looking to add new social media and open source data feeds all the time. Before we can add any feed, however, we have to make sure that is both publicly available and legal for us to obtain it. Please contact us if you have a specific feed in mind.
