Your are misrepresenting what I said, taking it our of context. I never suggested we should be gathering data from social media to replace the census or inform social policy now.
Oh. I was looking at this comment of yours, directly comparing the usefulness of social media with that of census. My bad.
__________________________________________________Despite RooFlyers aghast at social media as a resource, some site like Linked-In will give a lot of insight to how a persons career changed over their life including who they worked for, location, what duties those jobs entailed and specific education completed. Whereas the census just asks for a title (not very illuminating unless its something obvious like teacher) and highest level of education.
You may think peoples digital footprint is all lies, more lies and stupid cat videos
May I? How so? And I believe I referred to cat pictures, not cat videos. Are stupid cat videos actually a thing?
