Welcome to our latest updates article for SL PRO on IBM i2. We have decided to combine our usual biweekly updates into a single consolidated post, to be published on a monthly basis from now on. So, let’s discuss November. Last month saw us introduce a number of new features for major social media platforms including Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, VK, and OK. Read on for details.

[Instagram] Get Posts

This search method is now available for ‘Circular Area’ entities, meaning that all posts and photos geotagged within the specified radius can be instantly extracted.

[TikTok] Search by Face and Alias

This is one of our key queries which allows users to locate an individual’s profile across different social media with a combined ‘alias’ and ‘profile image’ search method. We have updated the query so that TikTok profiles can be found besides the usual platforms.

[LinkedIn] Get Posts Commented On

With this new method, users can instantly find all the LinkedIn posts that your person of interest has ever left comments on.

[LinkedIn] Get Reactions

Another all-new LinkedIn search enquiry to be run from a selected post, comment, or comment reply. The search method will return the LinkedIn profiles of all users who have left reactions (likes) on the entity in question.

[LinkedIn] Get Author

With this search method, users can now also identify the author of a selected comment reply.

[OK] Search by Face and Name

An important addition to our range of essential methods, Search by Face and Name is now also available for the popular social network Odnoklassniki (OK).

[VK] Various Methods

We have implemented an array of new search methods for VK including: [VK] Get Members, which makes it possible to find all members of a selected VK group; [VK] Get Groups and Pages, a vital method for checking the groups and pages your subject belongs to; [VK] Get Likes, to find all profiles that liked a selected post, video, or photo; [VK] Search, a powerful search method that returns all profiles with a similar name; and [VK] Search in Feeds, which finds posts containing a chosen phrase.
