Social Media and Human Rights


In March, I participated in a Social Media as Data Sources for Research workshop organised by the LSE's Centre for Learning Technology.  In one afternoon, it introduced attendees to a wealth of techniques, case studies, resources, and issues related to research using social media.  I provided an introduction to the ethical aspects of this type of research (see slides here).

The organisers have started a list of tools for social media research, including harvesting and visualisation tools, as well as links to case studies and research about social media.  Click here to access and contribute to this useful resource.
