Tips for Searching Social Media

How to Find Content:

  • Start by just browsing their feed -- see if it's active at all, and what they tend to post about. What hashtags do they commonly associate with?
  • Try Googling for a specific term in their feed, e.g. earth day @Jamie_Margolin
Social network... can search by... Account to Search? Hashtag Keywords Date
Twitter N Y Y Y*
Instagram N** Y Y N
LinkedIn Y*** Y Y Y
TikTok N Y Y N

**But without an account, you can't scroll through all posts nor open posts up to read the captions or view larger.

***You can view LinkedIn profiles without an account, however; you'd just click through from a Google search result.
