In this two-hour Facebook and Twitter extravaganza you will learn the best tricks to find people fast.

It’s possible to search millions of personal details in Facebook with a new service called Graph. Henk van Ess will teach you how to use this technology creatively with real world examples. How do you find employees of a weapons company? What photos did Russians take in Ukraine? How do you access the vast library of videos from Facebook users? How do youfind the relatives of a criminal? You will learn a new language that opens a whole new world of research possibilities.

Bonus: how to follow people in Twitter without being noticed and finding eyewitnesses very fast.
