Course description
This course provides students with an up-to-date understanding of how social networking sites work and how members act and interact.

Topics include the phenomena of virtual worlds and massively multi-player games, and how criminals recruit, communicate, and launder money in these environments; the operation of the largest sites; ways of concealing the location from which the internet is accessed; how criminal organizations use online social networks to interact, identify victims, and conceal their identity; and the risk to law enforcement officers (especially undercover investigators) posed by online social networking, social media, and viral videos.
