Making Social Media Matter is a hands-on, 3-day workshop designed to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills to quickly analyze and visualize data from popular social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and YouTube.
The tools demonstrated in this workshop for network analysis, geolocation, and machine learning are at the forefront of social media research and will equip attendees — even those with no computational training — with expert understanding of how to collect, analyze, visualize, and interpret social media data for internal and public use.
