Social Media &
Cell Phone Data

Social media data is the collected information and data from social networks that can be used to illustrate how users share, view, or engage with certain content or profiles. The data collected from social media sites can advise what type of content your audience responds to in terms of liking, sharing, and commenting. Some of the biggest social media data sources are LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
