Social media oversharing puts consumers’ identities and reputations at risk. Experian recently acquired Inflection Point Global (IPG) to empower you to mitigate this risk for your members.

Over the past few years, Experian Consumer Services has focused on building a best-in-the-business identity protection and management platform, and has recently built on that strategy with the recent acquisition of Inflection Point Global (IPG). IPG is the power behind Partner Solutions’ Social Media Monitoring product.

Our digital identities are formed by the information we share, and even sharing seemingly unimportant information can put your digital identity and reputation at risk. Data as simple as your mother’s maiden name could be the key that an identity thief uses to unlock your entire digital identity. And, 91% of hiring managers screen job applicants’ social networking profiles during the hiring process. It’s more important than ever to think twice about what you’re sharing online.

Social Media Monitoring alerts subscribers of instances where they are sharing personal information via social networking sites – profile information, comments, wall posts and more – which may expose personally identifiable information and put them at risk. It can also alert a subscriber of content that was found within their social network profiles that may damage their reputation like foul language, sexual content, and drug and alcohol references. Subscribers can monitor their children’s social networks too. Parents receive notifications when content on their child’s social network may indicate instances of cyberbullying, references to weapons, or intended sexual abuse (also known as grooming).

Experian Partner Solutions’ Social Media Monitoring service is comprehensive, covering Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. Subscribers may connect to the service easily via social media account credentials. Add Social Media Monitoring to your identity protection product today.
