Social Media Monitoring
How To Protect Your Brand On Social Media Platforms?
Around 6 billion user accounts and 2 billion active users can be attributed to only 10 Social Media Platforms (SMPs). This allows for a vast amount of often unmoderated content to be published on a daily basis. As a result, brand owners are faced with a substantial risk of IPR infringement.
Monitoring SMPs requires a crawler for real-time data, as well as investigators infiltrating closed groups, accounts and services to reveal abuse that is not publicly available.
As complaint procedures and types differ between SMPs, brand owners should make use of an exhaustive range of escalation measures to adequately protect their brand from abuse.
A smart mix of technology and legal/technical expertise allows us a global reach to detect abuse and to reveal patterns, leading to efficient and impactful enforcement.
