Implicit Surveys at Facebook
Surveys might bring up images of random digit dialling and long questionnaires, but statistical surveys are being reimagined in the internet age. The typical “Big Data” dataset is generated when a group of people interact with some product. In some cases, we could think about this group of people as an implicit survey sample coming out of a larger population, and try to learn about it. I’ll describe some of the work we do, including traditional survey statistics methods which are as useful as they used to be and some new solutions to new problems.
