Crimes that were reported are irrelevant. This compares number of actual arrests to the number of arrests that are reported on the departments’ Facebook pages.

This isn’t about the platform itself. It’s about the departments’ choices of which arrests to report on publicly. This study does focus on Facebook because it’s the most popular platform, making the dataset larger, but it isn’t about algorithms like I initially assumed before reading the study.
