Sometimes also referred to as the Wayback Machine, Internet Archive is a digital archive. Internet Archive for a couple of decades has been taking snapshots of websites and archiving them.
Another reverse image search is RevEye. It's a Chrome Add-on.
Why do a reverse image search:
The VLC Media Player, which is available for most platforms, will allow you to slow down video and to take snapshots. This is useful when trying to determine the authenticity of a video. Slowing the video down will allow you to see details you might otherwise miss and when you take a snapshot you can run the image through a reverse image tool to see if it's correctly labeled. This is very useful.
Twitter has an Advanced Search. Do your search in the search at the top of Twitter, then click on Search Filters and Advanced Search.
Another good Chrome add-on is Treeverse. This add-on allows users to see howTwitter users are connected to each other.
You can search domains, that's the base part of the URL, like, www.microsoft.com. who.is provides basic information about that domain, who owns it, sometimes their address, particularly important it'll report when the domain was registered. Recently registered sites don't have a history to check for authority.
You can search an image on Google by right-clicking the image and choosing search Google for image. You can find out how and where the image has been used. This can be useful in determining if the image is really what's it's labeled as.
You can upload your own images to Google to search and find if something similar is out there. Go to. https://reverse.photos/
Wikimapia labels many of the buildings on maps. It usually provides more information than Google maps. You can use this to confirm the location of buildings. It can be used to double check news stories: Are they where they say they are? Mouse over buildings to see their name. It's not perfect, it's not updated as often as it might be.
