In this course we will explore the methods that facilitate Social Media analysis, with a focus on Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare. The course will begin with short tutorials on the different platforms, methods to access public data and common analysis methods. Participants will then be split into teams of 4-6 and under the guidance of the supervisors, define and design a hackathon project based upon their interests and personal goals. Starting environments will be provided. The students will then have 6-8 hours to implement their project with the help of the supervisors and will present their projects to the summer school participants the following day.
