Why Social Media Archiving?


There can be significant challenges associated with capturing records of social media content. The content is often held in a variety of complicated, interactive and non-standardised formats on third-party platforms. There is also the danger of social media communication being deleted at any time, whether by an individual or via the third-party - meaning you aren’t able to control or preserve the content, and, once deleted, those communications could be lost forever.

However, you can solve these issues through archiving. Archiving creates compliant, legally admissible historical records of all your social media communications which retain all functionality and interactive elements.
