Data from social media platforms, such as Twitter and Facebook, offer endless opportunities for researchers. From the role of social networks in political participation to using social networks to spark conversations, debates, and sometimes even entire social movements, TASCHA Research Faculty Maria Garrido has conducted extensive research on how Twitter and Facebook affect social and political change.
On Tuesday, March 10, 2015, Maria will present to the Data Management Association of Puget Sound (DAMA of Puget Sound) on her research involving collecting and analyzing data from social media platforms. Using examples from her work investigating the role of Facebook in the Arab Spring and the use of Twitter as a collective voice in political protests, Maria will explore the challenges that researchers face when collecting and analyzing data from social media platforms.
