Twitter chat transcript - quality of social media research

Thanks to everyone who joined us on Twitter to discuss issues related to data and analysis quality arising from social media research - it was great to have a range of people involved. If you weren't able to make it, or if you want to take another look at what was said, the transcript is available after the jump - scroll to the bottom and work your way back up..

with social media research then the techniques need to
be replicable, but if research is exploratory..

@srjeffares: high quality social media research follows

inventing new binaries #NSMNSS

@nathanjurgenson depends on the study I should say.
#NSMNSS

@NSMNSS Q3 i.e. Analytics data helps us tally from what we've
received from other methods and also to determine online behaviors. #nsmnss

We'll be discussing all these issues in more detail at

review blog soon after.
NSMNSS
Thanks @VickiMcDermott Hopefully this got you thinking in time
 for Friday's #nsmnss event @NatCen

Again, for qual studies alignment of the purpose/?
and the type of data. Is visual, audio, or other kinds
of data appropriate? #NSMNSS
indradhoj
Thank you @NSMNSS for this opportunity. It helped
me accummulate some resources and get to know
what's happening. Will catch again. #nsmnss
VickiMcDermott
Thanks for running discussion @NSMNSS and
thanks to everyone for sharing, useful stuff to think
about #NSMNSS
indradhoj
@NSMNSS Q3 I think data from Google Analytics or
Facebook Analytics also help a lot in #socialmedia
research. #NSMNSS
NSMNSS
Wow, time flies! Time to wrap up. Thanks everyone,
please take a moment to reintroduce yourself and
leave a parting comment #NSMNSS
jess1ecat
@Notorious_QRG They definately aren't binary
opposites more of a continuum and it totally
depends what methods you are using...  #nsmnss
Notorious_QRG
@MuirTdm850 @barbour_rose @NSMNSS its
misleading to present online/offline as a binary
of opposites. see work of @nathanjurgenson #NSMNSS
jess1ecat
RT @barbour_rose: On replicability Id have
thought the strength is its immediacy - capturing
a specific moment in time >
Agreed Rose #nsmnss
jess1ecat
@srjeffares Agreed  but the tools are grounded
in epistemology too so need to understand their
origin. #nsmnss
barbour_rose
On replicability - I'd have thought the strength is
its immediacy - capturing a specific moment
in time #NSMNSS
indradhoj

RT @jess1ecat Q2 Takes us back to Q1: robustness
of sample and methodology. Some Studies could
be both replicable and generalisable. #nsmnss
NSMNSS
Thnx for Q2 views. Now Q3: Can appropriate
meta-data be assigned to SM data, given privacy
concerns? What would the meta-data be? #NSMNSS
einterview
I think sample characteristics are important
 #NSMNSS
srjeffares
@jess1ecat rep'ness is not an online/offline
 thing - it a question of epistemology. issue rather
if we u'stand the tools we apply #nsmnss
jess1ecat
A2. How have other people demonstrated
rpbustness? #nsmnss
jess1ecat
@G_Morrell agree I'm playing devil's advocate
if we want to use it in applied policy we'll have
to demonstrate robustness. #nsmnss
jess1ecat
@indradhoj & there's the issue replicable
and genralisable both require knowledge of
the sample's characterstics, poss.
problematic? #nsmnss
G_Morrell
@jess1ecat A2. agreed, but is there still a
question of how that robustness is demonstrated
to avoid 'black box' criticism @jsajuria #nsmnss
einterview
Q2 agreed, exploratory qual studies can be
basis for other research but not necessarily
important to be replicable.  #NSMNSS
NSMNSS
We are now more than 1/2 through our
#nsmnss tweetchat. Reminder to include Q.
number along w #nsmnss so we know
what you are responding to.
indradhoj
@jess1ecat It will be good if it is replicable
and findings can be generalized. #NSMNSS

srjeffares

#NSMNSS Q2 if making grand claims with
social media research then the techniques need
to be replicable, but if research is exploratory..
jess1ecat
A2.  Interesting ?, do we need it to be
replicable to be robust & useful? I think it
needs to be robust but not neccsy replicable.  #nsmnss
einterview
A study on an ongoing community might be
replicated. A study on a single event, or a
particular user, might be more difficult. #NSMNSS
jess1ecat
@srjeffares there are people who argue
representativeness of sample shouldn't
be an issue in online research
http://t.co/tHRKiZp6gR #nsmnss
NSMNSS
@einterview Q2 Can you expand on
that thought a little? #nsmnss
jsajuria
@NSMNSS my point is that if you can't make
 the data available,
how can others replicate your findings? #nsmnss
NSMNSS
@jsajuria yes, what do others think? #nsmnss
einterview
Q2. Depends on the nature of the study.
 #NSMNSS
jess1ecat
@barbour_rose I think your earlier question
re: going offline to understand online is
impnt &speaks to validity of interpretation.
 #nsmnss
jsajuria
@NSMNSS Q2. One of the issues is
about data ownership.
What happens if data is produced by companies?
Who owns it? #nsmnss
srjeffares
@jess1ecat do you have an example in mind?
#NSMNSS

@jasonleavey hi Jason good to see you here. #nsmnss

NSMNSS

Q2. How confident are you that social media
research is replicable? #NSMNSS
jess1ecat
@srjeffares I think you're right to a point but
 not all quality criteria will translate easily or
well to the social media realm #nsmnss
VickiMcDermott
@NSMNSS Q1. Loss of control with online data collection -
anyone can access from anywhere #NSMNSS

online and offline are not separate realms
