Event description

Description

This workshop will provide a brief introduction to the concept of social media data sets and their possibilities for scholarship and pedagogy. It does so through a gentle introduction to various tools used to mine Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms of interest to the participants (please send an email to davism17@mcmaster.ca if you would like another platform included), as well as a brief examination of the ways in which social media data can sometimes fall short of our expectations. No prior experience with datasets is required, but please bring a laptop as this session will have a hands-on element.
