Keep Still, and They Will Not See You

One of the latest viral trends is the ‘mannequin challenge’, and there have been some very creative ones. Even professional sports teams, celebrities and a group of guests at the White House got in on the fad.

Sometimes people will go to great lengths to get views.

When corporations conduct social media investigations on existing or potential employees, they typically look to see if that individual posted anything on their profile that may suggest they could be involved in criminal behaviour, radical affiliations or views not aligned with workplace human resource policies.

Well, would you believe that someone posted a video on Facebook of a bunch of friends, heavily armed doing the mannequin challenge? Once the police and thousands of other viewers saw the video, they were arrested.

Believe it. There are many more background screening and social media investigations examples. It is always worth a look.
