Call for Chapters
Proposals Submission Deadline: September 30, 2015
Full Chapters Due: October 30, 2015
This book collects research on the datafication of social media platforms, from the Web to specific social media platforms: social networking sites, content-sharing sites, microblogging sites, email systems, and others. This book will include chapters on related data extraction / visualization / analysis technologies, data extraction methods, analytical techniques, and unique cases. Ultimately, this text will capture insights about the datafying of social media.
In the age of the Social Web, much of the world has gone online as individuals and groups to use sociality to amplify every aspect of human life: work, family, sport, art, politics, governance, and other facets. These online interactions have left trails of data—direct text and multimedia contents; metadata (titles, labels, descriptive text, and tags); user profiles and user interrelationships; and other data that may be extracted and analyzed for other ways of knowing. The Surface Web itself enables learning about http networks, collected snippets of information, geolocational information, and technological site understructures. Online text corpuses may be analyzed with natural language analytical programs for text summarization, content networks, text searches for contextual analysis (and word trees). The information from microblogging sites enable real-time analysis of content streams and real-time event-graphing. Tags used on digital images and digital videos may be analyzed for relatedness to other tags. Article networks may be mapped on wikis to understand topical relatedness; this same feature may be used also to profile the human (and ‘bot) editors on open- and crowd-sourced encyclopedias. Video networks may be extracted to understand the types of video contents created around particular topics. Further, user network accounts (on video sharing sites) may be profiled and analyzed in a social network context. Social networking sites based around socializing or work or other targeted interests may also be plumbed for social networks and interchanged messages (message streams). There are numerous ways in which the Web and social media may be harnessed for awareness and decision-making.
Datafying social media is about extracting empirical information from the Web and social media platforms, conducting various queries and data visualizations on the contents, and emerging with fresh insights that inform awareness and decision-making.
Social Media Data Extraction and Content Analysis will address various social media platforms, available technologies employed to extract and analyze data, application analytical techniques, and ultimately what is knowable from the various platforms.
The target audience for this book will be scholars, researchers, professionals, and in-field practitioners engaged in social media and its myriad uses for learning, awareness, and decision-making.
