  7. 7. The Design Challenge ?
  8. 8. How can we visualize the viral impact ofCreative Commons content? cc ?!
  9. 9. We want to design a tool to visualize the re-publication and social sharing of creative commons content MEDIA SOCIAL NETWORKSw-york-times-and-israel/6897 @visualizingpalCENSE. Creative Commons fb.com/visualizingpalestine BY-NC-ND
  10. 10. At a single point in time, it is already easy to view data forsocial shares on the site of publication cc
  11. 11. But we also want to gather and visualize data when it’sre-published cc
  12. 12. And, to add to the challenge, we’d also like to be able tovisualize this over time
  13. 13. This kind of data can be gathered manually, with toolsincluding Google’s search-by-image...
  14. 14. You can gain partial snapshots of social interactions overtime with tools like Facebook Insights...
  15. 15. And sites like YouTube have tools to visualize how andwhen your content was ‘discovered’ by viewers...
  16. 16. But what we’d like to create is a single tool that can...1 Find where Creative Commons content is being re-published on digital media/ content platforms2 Measure social media interactions (shares/likes/tweets/pins) from these locations3 Log and visualize this data over time
