Social Media Archiving

Social Media Archiving

Archiving social media channels for financial and public sector organisations


There can be significant challenges associated with capturing records of social media content. The content is often held in a variety of complicated, interactive and non-standardised formats on third-party platforms. There is also the danger of social media communication being deleted at any time, whether by an individual or via the third-party – meaning you aren’t able to control or preserve the content, and, once deleted, those communications could be lost forever.

However, you can solve these issues through archiving. Archiving creates compliant, legally admissible historical records of all your social media communications which retain all functionality and interactive elements.

  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn

Many financial and public sector organisations now using the most popular forms of social media for their customer communications. However, many have disregarded the need to archive content in order to meet compliance obligations.

As part of MiFID II, it is a firm’s legal responsibility to keep records of all electronic communications – including social media – in order to remain compliant with the regulations.
