AI-Powered Social Media Screening
Ferretly helps organizations build a stronger workplace culture and mitigate risk to their brand and bottom lines by identifying those candidates that have exhibited undesirable behavior online.
The smartest background screening platform on the market
Ferretly incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze posts and images across 14 distinct risk classifications. We use advanced machine learning and natural language processing to flag posts for specific risk factors. Ferretly processes thousands of posts from a single subject in seconds and you get a more thorough analysis than a human could achieve in hours analyzing the same set of posts. Here's a sample of some of the risks we can detect.
Legally compliant and thorough analysis using Artificial Intelligence
Ferretly makes running social media background checks effortless. Our AI analyzes up to 7 years (10 years for non FCRA) of public posts* from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, TikTok, and Reddit as well as web and news articles and aggregates the risk factors and sentiment into an easy to understand score.
Ferretly analyzes text and images from every post including original posts, likes, replies, reposts, and comments. We even analyze memes and custom image content based on your keywords.
Ferretly follows FCRA and EEOC guidelines and conforms to both Federal and State guidelines when it comes to social media privacy.
Ferretly can produce a social media report in under 30 minutes* in most cases. Why wait several days to get a result? Add your subjects, associate their social profiles and press run check.

* Note times will vary depending upon image makeup and other factors. Social media platforms may place limits on the number of posts Ferretly can access, therefore it is possible that not all posts will be included in the analysis.
