    HDCC106: Social Media Analytics - Online

    Social Media Analytics is a course for students who are simultaneously interested in social media, data, and robust analysis of digital media. While interacting online, we navigate a near-endless sea of data in a variety of forms—textual, audiovisual, demographic, biometric, and more. This data is a window into human life, but making sense of it is a task that requires both competence and creativity. In this course, we will imagine and explore different computational tools and methods for capturing, aggregating, organizing, and analyzing social media data to better understand phenomena such as consumer habits, interpersonal conflict, social movement(s), community formation and disruption, language evolution and adaptation, political argument, and societal change.
