This tool can help you find broken social media links

Hello everyone,

I am Nitin yadav(KD) back again with another write-up

The tool Socialhunter is a great resource for pentesters, bug bounty hunters, and also for your personal use for your company. This tool helps you to find broken social media links. The tool is easy to use and has a straightforward interface.

Broken social media links can be a massive headache for your company as they can be hijacked by anyone and leads to misguiding people or many frauds can be done through these broken links. Luckily, there is a tool that can help you find and fix these links quickly and easily.

The Socialhunter is a free tool that can help you find and fix broken links on your website. It can scan your website pages for broken links and report any that it finds.

This tool crawls the given URL and finds broken social media links that can be hijacked. Broken social links may allow an attacker to conduct phishing attacks. It also can cost a loss of the company's reputation. Broken social media hijack issues are usually accepted on the bug bounty programs.

It supports Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tiktok without any API keys.


From Binary:

You can download the pre-built binaries from the releases page and run them. For example:

From Source:

Install Go on your system and then run


Socialhunter requires 2 parameters to run:

-f: Path of the text file that contains URLs line by line. The crawl function is path-aware. For example, if the URL is, it only crawls the pages under /blog path

-w: The number of workers to run (e.g -w 10). The default value is 5. You can increase or decrease this by testing out the capability of your system.

I hope you enjoyed this one and I see you next time :)

Take care and stay safe!
