About Social Media

The promise of social media as a resource and topic of social science research is tantalising, it is widely recognised that this dynamic field may have much to offer. Our research focuses on tackling the challenges related to social media content analysis, part of what some refer to as 'the big data challenge', through the use of rich arrays of algorithmic solutions, libraries and tools designed for mining big social datasets - investigating specific problems such as scale, noise and sparsity associated with new social data such as micro-blogs.
