Social Media Profiles

Research Strategy

The research team could not find Paul Page’s personal information. All his social media handles only mention his career life. Other than where he lives, we were unable to find more information outside Paul Page’s career life. Information such as his marital status, how he spends his free time and where he grew up was not publicly available.

We first began by analyzing his profile from articles and blogs published on different sources like TMC, Wall Street Journal, among others. These sources did not provide any useful information for our research. Next, we searched for his social media profiles like Twitter and LinkedIn. We were hoping to find his hobbies and interests and information about his family life from his social media posts. Lastly, we searched for his interviews. Often during interviews, individuals are asked about their family lives and hobbies and interests. However, there still was no useful information that would help us address Page’s marital status, how he spends his free time and where he grew up.
