Creating Impact Since 2015
Learn more about how Fama’s social media insights are helping agencies across the country make sense of large volumes of messy information found on the public web.
Since our founding in 2015, and through the application of artificial intelligence (AI), we have analyzed more-than 80,000,000 unique posts on public social media networks and the web. The insights we produce have helped leading corporations, professional sports teams, non-profits, and background screening agencies to reduce the risk of hiring employees who exhibit racist, intolerant, bigoted behaviors on their public Internet personas.
It is this same enterprise-grade software that we are extending to police agencies across the country, through a free trial. All without compromising on our commitment to privacy and compliance with state and local jurisdictions.
Ready for the World of Tomorrow
We believe human resource managers should be empowered to identify intolerance not only in their screening process but as a part of robust training programs.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Is This Legal?
Fama is a consent-based screening company that is compliant with the FCRA, EEOC, and GDPR in addition to other state and local laws. These various legal frameworks are designed to protect consumers when they are pursuing employment. Our compliance with these frameworks is of critical importance to us, and we take privacy seriously.
Is This Like "Big Brother" Watching All Social Media Activity?
Any report being initiated across our systems requires the informed consent of an individual first. Further, if the report is being used in any pre-employment or FCRA/GDPR-related context, any decisions based on that report must be discussed with the consumer, and the consumer must have an opportunity to contest or explain the results.
Why Do Organizations Use Fama?
Fama helps businesses identify problematic behavior across new hires by analyzing publicly available online information. We don’t score, don’t provide a thumbs up/down, and don’t make a recommendation. Instead we help talent leaders build a workforce on their terms. We help them find the hard-to-spot behaviors like intolerance or threats or harassment. These are the sorts of behaviors that, left unchecked, can damage an agency’s culture and adversely impact its brand.
What Groups Generally Use The Software? (Inside An Agency)
As part of the Talent Acquisition (recruiting) function, employers leverage Fama’s AI software instead of relying on human operations that can be: inconsistent, unstructured, and oftentimes incorrect.
As part of the Talent Management function, we are seeing an increase in use cases where companies are using Fama as a tool for employee growth & development. The insights that Fama generates become the starting point for employers to create customized training programs for their employees.
