When loading collected data into Cellebrite Physical Analyzer, there are many “hidden” features that simplify navigation once you understand how to use them.

For example, if you are using Facebook Takeout, there are many additional filters built into Physical Analyzer that are often overlooked. Depending on what information you are looking for, you can filter and select posts, reactions, shares, updates, and more.

If you choose “check-ins”, you will not only see all the locations, the people the user was with, and the source files, but you can go to a map and see all the specific locations.

You can also hop directly to the timeline to see what occurred before, after, or around an event. This allows you to put real context and understanding behind information that was recovered from social media.
