Annenberg School for Communication’s Internet Policy Observatory recently collaborated up with the Centre for Internet and Society, the Centre for Communication Governance at NLU Delhi, and Digital Asia Hub to host a workshop titled “Internet Policy in South and Southeast Asia: Research Methods for Advocacy.” As a part of this workshop, Dr. Khazraee was selected to present a session on Social Network Analysis.
This practicum is focused on the application of Social Network Analysis (SNA) to the study of social media. In this session, we will also cover the mechanisms of data collection from various social media platforms and the application of SNA to analyzing issues salient to internet policy activism. The practicum is presented in two sections. The first section covers theoretical aspects of SNA and basics of data collection methods. The second section is dedicated to hands-on experience. Through working with a real data set, participants will extract useful information, interpret the data, and finally, communicate it effectively through visualizations. We will use free and open source applications for data collection, data extraction, social network analysis and visualizations.
