As described in Data Updates, keeping our
locations object current is one of our primary focuses. Here we outline how we communicate these updates to customers across both fields.
locations object has an
is_primary field that contains a boolean value. For a single profile, there will be at most one profile tagged as primary. This profile will appear in the flattened
location_ fields. The primary values are the ones we believe to be the most recent/relevant object from the
last_updated field exists for both
experience objects. It indicates the last time one of our Data Union partners saw a person's location and/or current job "in the wild." Since many of our data partners are themselves focused on data accuracy, we are able to utilize their timestamps to accurately map when this value was last seen. The
last_updated date does not necessarily indicate that a change in the field occurred but when the most recent data source was provided this data and confirmed its accuracy.
