As part of the ACSPRI Social Science Methodology Conference 2016, Dr. Rob Ackland and Timothy Graham (University of Queensland) ran the workshop: "Collecting and Analyzing Social Media Data Using VOSON SocialMediaLab".
VOSON SocialMediaLab is an R package that provides a suite of tools for collecting and constructing networks from social media data (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube). SocialMediaLab also collects the associated text data from social media platforms (e.g. Tweets, Facebook fan page posts and comments, YouTube video comments).
The workshop was held on the 19th of July 2016, in Sydney.
