GIJN Hosts Open Source Forensic Guidance Workshop

The Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) is hosting an online workshop on “How to Follow People and Companies on LinkedIn” with an assessor from Poynter’s International Fact-Checking Network, Henk Van Ess.

The workshop is scheduled for September 15, 2022.

Participants will learn how to follow people and businesses on the platform, find out what individuals and businesses post online on specific topics, and determine who is in a specific LinkedIn group without being a member.

Journalists interested in investigative reporting are invited to participate.

The online workshop will take place over Zoom and will be held in English with interpretations in French, Spanish, Russian and Arabic.

The organizer states: “LinkedIn is now the largest professional network in the world, with more than 774 million members in more than 200 countries.

“It’s an important place for businesses and job seekers, but it can also be a great tool for finding information about people and businesses.”
