Using LinkedIn for Social Research
LinkedIn / Social Research
Back in 2012, when LinkedIn was close to the 200 million users mark, a young but very computational (and quite resourceful) assistant professor, hustled through his contacts and somehow managed to get access to the trove of LinkedIn data. Prasanna Tambe—at the NYU Stern School of Business at the time—was not the first to use the information on LinkedIn for research, but definitely the first to use LinkedIn data to this scale. Tambe mined the skills and roles of all 175 million users at the time, though he probably ended up working with a smaller sample, to understand how the rapid evolution of skills and know-how in the technology sector is impacting investments in new IT innovations.
