DMDS: Building Data Sets Using Social Media

Nov 9 2017 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship, Mills Memorial Library

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 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. Instructors: Matthew Davis and John Fink
