Course Syllabus

This event will introduce the importance of social media research & provide an overview of NodeXL Pro for the analysis of social media data. NodeXL provides easy access to social media network data streams, advanced network metrics, text and sentiment analysis, and powerful report generation with just a few clicks.

Gain insights into colections of annotated connections. Discover the key people leading each topic discussed in social media. Identify groups, factions, divisions and market segments in a discussion stream. Learn to "Think Link" and gain insights into collections of connections found in social media and beyond!

The need to gain insights into social media has grown in importance with the increasing popularity of social networking websites in particular (e.g. Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram etc.) and social computing in general. As people increasingly participate in online communities for social, commercial, and civic interaction, new methods are needed to study these phenomena.

The event will be led by Dr. Marc Smith from the Social Media Research Foundation with guest speakers who will demonstrate network methods for research insights. Members of Team NodeXL will also provide a variety of tutorials on how to use NodeXL.
