    I’ve been arguing with my friend for about 30 minutes now about whether it’s possible to get someone’s IP through social media.

    Friend is 100% convinced it’s possible through command prompt using the “netstat” command, but I really doubt any big social media company would make it that easy to get a users personal info.

    So my question is: Can you actually get someone’s IP through their social media account?

    No, your friend is wrong. No social media site I know is peer to peer so it’s not possible. It’s possible with an ipgrabber or by compromising the social media site itself but that’s about it.
