FBI Looking to Screen Social Media, News Sites

1 min read

The FBI is asking technology companies for assistance in upgrading how the bureau gathers information from sources such as social media and popular news websites.

According to a request for information on FedBizOpps, the FBI is looking into a “secure, lightweight web application portal” to gather information from social media websites. The application would search both social networking and open source news sites such as Facebook, Twitter and CNN for breaking news and events.

The FBI wants the application to allow for keyword searches on social media and news sites and secure sharing of information within the intelligence community.

The FBI is also looking for the application to include access to geospatial maps, real-time notifications, data filtering and the ability to find the location of social media posts.
