During the I-129F and DS-160 investigations, as the petitioner, will the authorities (1) be able to look at all of my activity on social media and (2), if they are able to do so, will their findings impact the applications? Seems to me that access to my social media accounts would be beyond their scope. Just asking.  Thanks

It’s entirely up to you to refuse them such information if they ask for it, but in turn they are entitled to refuse you a visa if they feel you are hiding something material. Bit of a catch-22, unless of course you are hiding something that would negatively impact your application.

edit: oh, I missed that you’re the petitioner. That doesn’t seem to be covered in the above, it only seem to pertain to beneficiaries/visa applicants.
