Our understanding about the structure and dynamics of social systems has been developed considerably during the last years due to the recent availability of large digital datasets. Special focus of research is directed towards communication datasets, which give us the opportunity to explore the structure and evolution of social networks of millions of individuals. However, although these studies consider social networks in details, they miss one important dimension regarding the socioeconomic status of people. In this talk we will discuss methods to infer socioeconomic status of individuals and to understand how these features correlate with the network evolution and language usage of people. In our examples we will use large-scale combined datasets from Latin America and France.
