All-In-One X-Ray Search Toolbox for Social Media Posts.

All-in-one Social Media Search Toolbox.
Did you know that as well as their own internal search engines, social media platforms can be "X-rayed" using Advanced Google search? Why would you want to do this? Firstly, X-raying can search in different ways and in more controlled ways than the internal methods. Secondly, it allows you to search without being logged into your social media accounts and to search in private/incognito modes. Thirdly, it allows to search more than one platform at the same time. Here I am collecting a variety of X-ray search tools for social media posts for your convenience. Note these search results are in date order, the most recent first, as the default. Please do let me know if there are social platforms you would like to be added here.
