Law Enforcement have a special API (Application Programming Interface) or backend into Facebook and Google+ that allows Law Enforcement agencies to show to them more details than regular people. This means if your Facebook is locked down and private, this API they use overlooks the privacy settings you have on your account. It also overrides closed groups and pages as well. Also, certain employment agencies have this API as well for background checks on potential employees companies are thinking of hiring. For a small fee, companies can pull all social media posts you’ve made in order for them to make a determination to hire you or not so again, regardless of your privacy settings, this method overrides all privacy settings.
My determination of all of this is just not to use social media at all, however if you must use social media, Twitter is the best one so far but still.. the saying goes, never write on a piece of paper you don’t want the world to see.
