Social Media

A staggering number of public social media conversations take
place every day, some of which indicate harm. Finding them is a nearly impossible task for any safety team or individual. Social Sentinel scans through a billion public posts made daily to identify only the ones related to your schools’ safety, security, and wellness.

Social Media Scanning Highlights

Be where the conversations are happening.

We put you where the digital conversations take place with a proactive solution that helps you identify potential threats hiding in public view.

Respectfully scan beyond the geofence.

Our proprietary technology identifies potential threats in and beyond a geofence while respecting the boundaries of privacy and free speech.

Content categorization for easy assessment.

Public posts with potentially harmful content are delivered as Alerts or Discussions for your team to assess.

Collaborate with a tap.

Instantly share alerts and discussions containing potentially
threatening content with safety stakeholders.

Focus on the Posts That Matter Most.

No one has time to scan through 1,000,000,000 digital conversations per day to find the critical content and cries for help that could be standing between students’ safety and an act of violence. Our social media scanning product weeds out the noise for you and delivers identifiable, locally-relevant indicators of harm.
