A Single Pane of Glass 

View a subject's posts across their social media platforms in one place.  You can choose to view all of their posts or just their flagged posts.  You can also choose to view posts based on sentiment. 

Web and News Search

In addition to social media posts, Ferretly will search for any related news and web page articles that are relevant to your candidate.  These results are optional and can also be included in the background report.

Clear insight into the risks associated with your subject

We calculate an overall social media score by combining sentiment analysis with machine learning to flag high risk posts.  This approach provides uniformity for candidate comparisons.

Stay EEOC compliant with the ability to redact images

You can redact images in Ferretly that could possibly expose protected class information.  You have complete control of which images you want redacted and all changes will be reflected in the background report.
