A new study says that the personality traits of those who use social media platforms, like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, can predict a person’s future employment and income.
In the study, researchers from Northwestern University in Illinois and the University of Michigan looked at people’s job and income statistics for the year 2017 and looked at the personality profiles of people who use these platforms.
Their findings were published in the online journal Personality and Individual Differences.
The researchers compared the personality characteristics of people in the two groups to determine if the personality of the person using these platforms is linked to their economic and career future.
The study is the first to analyze personality in people who are active on these platforms and compared the profiles of these people to the profiles from people who do not use social networks.
They found that those who regularly use social platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, have a lower average income and a higher risk of being unemployed than those who do a lot of work on social media.
According to the study: “The results suggest that the use of social media by those who are unemployed can influence their future economic prospects by providing a framework for future employment decisions.
However, the use and predictability of these personality traits, such that the relationship between job status and social network use is stronger for those who have a more active use of Twitter, are less likely to have a college degree, and have lower earnings, all suggest that there may be an underappreciated role for social network data in predicting economic and employment outcomes.”
In sum, social media may be a useful tool for the individual, but it does not predict job or career outcomes in a reliable and meaningful manner,” the study said.
The findings come at a time when employers are trying to predict job growth, and job seekers are struggling to understand the role social media plays in their job search.
“There are many different platforms for job postings and they are all used by many people. “
Social media has been around for a long time and it is now the most commonly used platform for job seekers,” said J.C. Smith, associate professor of psychology at Northwestern University.
“There are many different platforms for job postings and they are all used by many people.
But there are some that have much lower levels of usage, and these are the ones that we are trying and trying to understand.”
The study focused on the personality profile of more than 4,000 people who were employed in the US.
The average age of the participants was 37 and the median annual income was $53,846.
The people who used social media more often had a lower income than those that used it less often.
The most frequent social media users also tended to have higher levels of unemployment.
According, the researchers also found that the more people who regularly used social networks, the higher their income was.
The majority of the study participants were female, but nearly two-thirds were white and half were between 25 and 29.
According the researchers, the average income for people who did not use the social networks was $52,723 and the average earnings for people using them were $49,639.
The research also found a correlation between income and job status, with higher income people having lower unemployment rates.
The next step for the researchers is to further investigate the relationship and the impact of the social network usage.
“Our next step is to study people who have jobs in industries that depend on the employment of people with social media profiles, such for example, financial institutions, healthcare facilities, etc.,” said Smith.
“For example, what is the impact that social media use has on employment?
This could be important for determining the degree to which the use will have a long-term impact on people’s employment prospects.”
