#NSMNSS / SRA event: An introduction to tools for social media research
£115 for non-members, £95 for SRA members
Following the success of March’s #SoMeEthics conference, the SRA and #NSMNSS are teaming up with 8 expert speakers to present a one-day session on tools for social media research.
The event aims to introduce, in a practical way, some of the things that are possible with social media research. It is aimed at social researchers who want to find out more about what this new methodology can offer, or social media researchers interested in seeing what other tools/techniques are out there.
Our speakers will introduce a mix of (mostly) free-to-use tools, demonstrating with real examples how they can be used in the analysis of a range of social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, blogs, and Flickr. They will cover both quantitative and qualitative social media analysis techniques, including the analysis of both text and image data, network analysis, geographical analysis, and more.
