As we navigate the social web we leave traces of our behaviour with every like, share, follow and friend. As a result there is an immense amount of data available about social relationships online. This workshop will equip participants with a foundational understanding of social network analysis and will introduce free tools for collecting and analyzing online social network data. Over the course of this two part workshop participants will conduct a short network analysis project making use of current Twitter data (other data sources may be available upon request). Check out this example for a taste of what you will learn.
