Social Media in the Inc. 500 - Promotional Bullshit Masquerading as Research
It’s getting awfully difficult to find real “research” these days. As I seem to be pointing out on an increasingly regular basis, “studies” being published around topics such as social media are almost transparently by the interests of the people conducting the studies or the studies’ sponsors.
To be sure, bias in research is nothing new. Unfortunately, it seems that the ability to hold bias in check has been all but lost and much of the “research” being published around “social media” is little more than promotional bullshit masquerading as research.
