Event description
Using CrowdTangle Data with Professor Axel Bruns

About this event

CrowdTangle has emerged as one of the key sources of data on public posting activities on Facebook; it now also explicitly offers access to academic researchers. This workshop provides an introduction to the data available from CrowdTangle, and to how such data can be used in scholarly research. Working hands-on with CrowdTangle, the workshop introduces its functions; we will also work with data exported from CrowdTangle in the data analytics software Tableau to analyse and visualise patterns of communication.

In advance of the workshop, please install a trial version of Tableau Desktop (http://www.tableau.com/products/trial) on your computer. The trial version is available free of charge, and is required for accessing the sample dataset that we'll be working with. If you've already got Tableau installed on your laptop, please make sure you are using the latest version. Further, please also download the three datasets from the following Dropbox folder to your laptop: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3d8xkwdohms8ax5/AADn3MGoaYRbp3EGcsqlNe0Ma?dl=0
