Mining on your own land

Who owns the information on social media?  Everyone?

“Wall Street Moves Toward Mining of Social-Media Data,” The Wall Street Journal, June 4, 2018 B4.  Companies now looking focusing on “alternative data reports” concerning a potential acquisition target, which are things such as  user “purchase data, mobile app usage[,] and web surveys of prices.”

This data is mined from social media.

A powerful case for (a) using what’s available and (b) the ownership of data of social media.
