Datafication is the transformation of social action into online quantified data, thus allowing for real-time tracking and predictive analysis. It involves converting previously unseen processes or activities into data that can be recorded, monitored, analyzed, and optimized. The most recent technology employed has made it possible for many new ways to "Datify" our routine actions. So, the term "datafication" describes how routine interactions between living things can be converted into a data format and applied to society.
