It’s clear that social media usage has risen in all age groups, and the large swaths of information posted by individuals reflect preferences, lifestyles, habits, and, in some cases, neuroses. Insurers can use this mounting social data to create a real-time risk profile while shaping more effective claims and underwriting operations, Celent explains in its new report, “Using Social Data in Claims and Underwriting.”

They stress that one of the keys to successful implementation will be tempering enthusiasm with the reality that social data is still in its formative stages.
