CrowdTangle is an analytics platform from Facebook that builds easy-to-use tools in collaboration with partners to deliver greater transparency into the spread of public information on social media. 

The CrowdTangle US Census State Live Displays were built to help understand the public conversation around the US Census on Facebook.

This Live Display searches for census terms and surfaces the most recent posts from Pages for each of the 50 US states. Below, we've broken out how we built each column, and how they're organized.
