On social media platforms (e.g. Twitter), after posting a tweet that has been used to refute false information, is it reliable to use the comments below it to assess the credibility of the tweet? As it is the user's choice whether or not to comment, does this practice lead to selection bias? For example, under the pressure of certain social norms, it takes courage to refute information posted by an official account, i.e. users who support the official claim are more likely to comment.

In recent years, the dynamic development of popular social media portals, which a significant part of children and adolescents browse every day on smartphones, has a significant impact on the profile of interests of children and adolescents. Recently, there is more and more data suggesting the negative impact of frequent browsing of popular social media portals by children and adolescents. In publications and media reports, there are theses about the correlation between the above issue and algorithms promoting specific posts and comments posted on such popular social media portals as Facebook, Instagram, Tweeter, TikTok, etc.

Is it for children and young people to limit, limit the use of smartphones?
Should I fully control the use of smartphones by children and adolescents?
If children or adolescents use smartphones for learning, as a tool to support education processes, communication with schoolchildren and friends, and if these devices use new online media from time to time, this may not be positively assessed. However, if divides or young people from smartphones use many hours a day, among other things, viewing advertisements on social media portals and worthless memes and films, then it can have a destructive effect on the intellectual and psychological development of children and adolescents. In this situation, the use of smartphones by children and teenagers should be limited and controlled by parents, guardians and teachers.

The database of a social media portal such as Facebbok is already a powerful collection of information. Some research centers specializing in the use of Big Data datasets downloaded from social media portals through sentiment analysis, develop reports that can help in forecasting phenomena and processes in the future.
Medicine is one of the areas in which there are great possibilities in this matter. For example, insurance companies and commercial banks granting loans may be interested in information shared by users on Facebook and, possibly, also on other social media portals.
Apparently, some insurance companies and commercial banks during the analysis of a submitted insurance or credit application review the information content of accounts, applicant profiles, potential customer, contractor posted on social media portals. Does anyone from you conduct research in this field? Does anyone of you have scientific publications with research results in this field?

There are four kinds of tools available to measure social networking addiction.
1) Tools that measure generalized internet addiction such as Internet addiction scale (Young, 1998), Pathological Internet Use Scale (Morahan-Martin & Schumacher, 2000), Online Cognition Scale (Davis et al., 2002), and Internet-Related Problem Scale (Armstrong et al., 2000).
2) Since Facebook has recently been one of the most popular media, many measures have been developed to measure Facebook-related addiction (Çam & Isbulan, 2012; Andreassen et al., 2012b; Sofiah et al., 2011).
3) Two scales that assess generalized social media addiction are Bergen Social Media Addiction Scale (Andreassen et al., 2016) and Social media disorder (Van den Eijnden et al., 2016).
4) Tools that measure social networking addiction such as Addictive tendencies toward SNS (Wu et al., 2013) and Social networking addiction scale (Shahnawaz et al., 2013).
However, a closer look at these tools revealed that none measured social networking addiction except for the last two. The first category of tools measures generalized internet addiction while the second category of tools measures a very specific parameter that is Facebook. The third category of tools which are of recent origin measure social media addiction. In a review on social networking sites, Kuss and Griffiths (2017) categorically stated that “social networking and social media use have often been interchangeable in the scientific literature, but, they are not same” Also, they stated that “Facebook addiction is only one example of SNS addiction.”

How should/could we consider all of the dimensions, polarization and dialectic and problematic forms of engagement within and in relation to social when doing research on citizen engagement in relation to social media? Our research team has been doing research on the subject for the past few years, and this has involved online questionnaires in a number of countries, case studies using mainly Twitter data, interviews with diverse colleagues and civil society activists internationally, and knowledge dissemination and debate mainly through Facebook, among other connected projects. While we can theorize and conceptualize citizen engagement (we’re interested in examining the effects of social media on citizen engagement?), we’re also participants (consumers and producers of debate, dialogue and interaction). We’ve noticed and also experienced bots, trolls, cantankerous individuals and moments of in- and mis-comprehension. This goes with the terrain but also makes us reflect on how debate does, should and might take place within the confines of click-bait, clictivism and sharply divergent viewpoints. Some have argued that there isn’t a lot of space between disconnected and unlike groups and interests to address concerns in a meaningful way, and we can see this. Others have noted there are some openings for more engaged and salient debate, and we can also see that some social movements have been able to move beyond mobilized opposition to reach higher levels (BLM, #metoo, Idle No More and other examples), and, effectively, bring about some levels of conscientization and social change. My question relates to this changing context, and how we should consider social media research, warts and all. Traditionally, there have been many levels of control on who participated and how through research but now the gate has been, proverbially, blown open. How do researchers consider the ethical, epistemological, methodological and personal dimensions of research that connects with, is interwoven with and overlaps with social media?

There is a lot of mental disturbance due to social media platforms. How can someone manage that mental stress? Won’t social media platforms harm our brain more than now. What about the future generations?
Relevant answer
Answer
We have to move from ego (maximizing material desires) to soul (living by spirit).
Electronic platforms are only a modern technical media reflection of the unbalanced human psyche. The way of positive psychology is mutual understanding, creative love and spiritual elevation by higher wisdom.
It can not be ruled out that some forms of mental depression have genetic or physical roots, but this is a limited and smaller group of human psychopathology, i.e. sometimes, only medication can help to better a condition for certain patients.

The Internet has been developing only for 3 decades becoming the main global information medium and the environment for creating new types of websites and innovative, technological startups that are successful in business if they offer attractive information services. Examples of companies that initially as startups and now as large technology companies have achieved spectacular business successes are corporations offering Internet information and marketing services in the environment of created and developed social media portals.
Currently, there are many, at least several dozen globally operating social media portals, several of which have gained a large, minimum percentage or larger share in the market of information and marketing internet services. Globally, these markets are dominated by several social media portals that have specialized in a specific profile of information and / or information offered to a particular segment of Internet users. Social media portals dominating globally include: Facebook, Instagram, Tweeter, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube, Pinterest and others. Among the Internet users, the largest segment of the recipients of information services for social media portals are young people, many of whom are still students of primary and secondary schools as well as students studying at universities. As a result, social media portals used as a communication medium by students are increasingly becoming an instrument supporting the learning process.
Due to the above, the dynamic development of social media portals on the Internet is currently underway. For young people using smartphones, social media portals are one of the main sources of information. Probably the next stage in the development of social media portals will be the implementation of artificial intelligence to these portals and to search engines and the creation of applications of the type of interactive advisors on individual Internet information pages. New technologies of computerized, advanced information processing, technologies typical for the current fourth technological revolution, known as Industry 4.0, are increasingly integrating and functioning in the Internet environment.
The current technological revolution, known as Industry 4.0, is determined by the development of the following technologies of advanced information processing: Big Data database technologies, cloud computing, machine learning, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, Business Intelligence and other advanced data mining technologies. These technologies are successively implemented to developed social media portals. Due to the development of applications of these advanced information processing technologies, new types of computerized teaching instruments are created in educational processes, and educational systems also undergo technological transformation and Education 4.0 is defined.
Do you agree with my opinion on this matter?
Therefore, I am asking you the following questions:
- Does the development of social media portals affect educational processes in schools and universities?
- How will education change in the future due to the development of smart social media portals?
- How can this development affect education, pedagogy and education in the future?

Can a school discussion club run on social media portals be an active didactic tool that develop critical thinking in students?
Yes, I totally agree to this concept. First of all, it should be monitored by teachers and school authorities prohibiting negative and offset remarks.
The threads of conversation and relevant answers to questions by students will boost the morale of students. The intrinsic motivation of students will accentuate while seeing their answers being READ, RECOMMENDED and LIKED. The students will opt for research and give valuable and deep insight to questions enhancing critical and collaboration skills. These two skills are termed as 21st Century Skills.
Teachers can take the social media discussion tool for discussion in classrooms and also lead students to Media Conference thereby developing leadership skills in them.

It depends on what kind of data we're talking about.
If it's about tracking mentions of different keywords, hashtags, or users, a social media monitoring tool would do the trick.
The thing is, if you want to get historical data that tracks a few years back, it's going to cost you an arm and a leg. I am pretty sure you could go with Brandwatch (https://brandwatch.com) if you have the budget.
If you wanted to go after a more budget-friendly solution, I think we could be of help at Brand24 (https://brand24.com).
Like I mentioned, social media monitoring tools help you track a variety of keywords. On top of that, you'll get the analytics that includes:

  • social media reach
  • social interactions (likes/shares/comments)
  • influence score, etc.

Dear Friends and Colleagues of RG
Applications of advanced data processing and analysis in Big Data database systems are gradually expanding in various fields of scientific, research and business activity. The possibilities of future applications are almost limitless. Many business entities that do not yet use advanced data processing and analysis technology in Big Data database systems are considering introducing it to their business activities in order to improve the economic efficiency of their business.
However, the question becomes more and more relevant:
Does anyone of you research the problems of users of online portals built in Big Data database systems?
Do you agree with me on the above matter?

It seems to me that the answer to this question can be sought through the study of behavioral, social and informational activities of users of social media portals.
Users of social media portals provide specific information for their friends or publicly on the websites of specific social media portals and in the comments posted on other websites.
In this way, social communication develops, which significantly complements and displaces the classic mass media information.
On the other hand, social media portals written by users are a valuable source of information for marketing companies, which analyze and analyze analytical reports commissioned by other companies interested in the opinions of Internet users relating, for example, to the recognition of a brand, product, mission of a specific company.
In view of the above, the current question is: The development of social communication on the Internet?

Nowadays, a lot of social media occupied the minds of PhD Scholars and as such most of their times are being devoted on this social media activities. Most scholars are being distracted at home by family activities. How did you do it that you finish as expected? What did you do to your times? How much time did you spend daily on your write up or your research? How did you prioritize your time?

I read two very pertinent guide books at the beginning of my PhD. Try reading this one to start: https://www.amazon.com/Authoring-PhD-Doctoral-Dissertation-Palgrave-ebook/dp/B006UH4F12
Three things that I took from these guide books:
  1. Treat the PhD position as a paid job - follow normal workplace rules, start and finish times, scheduling breaks/leave/vacation throughout the year;
  2. Do not get distracted by 'helping' others' research, especially when it comes to research associated with your supervisor/advisor, academic department/faculty, friends, colleagues etch - remain focused on your own research;
  3. Start writing at the beginning of your PhD to practice/improve your writing skills. Conceive that everything you do, everything you write, is designed to succeed in your PhD oral examination - to convince your examiners that you are the expert in your field and that you deserve to pass.
I hope this advice helps you.

Dear Participant,
I am currently pursuing my MSc. in Information Systems Management from the University of Liverpool. As part of my dissertation research, I would like to help us discover the market’s sentimental mood from micro-blogging posts through identified text clustering and lexical analysis algorithms.
To begin the survey;
  1. You will access the following page http://sema.mdosigroup.com
  2. Login using either your Facebook or Twitter account to access social media content.
  3. Go to the following link http://sema.mdosigroup.com/SEMA which will give you further instructions to proceed.
What you’ll experience will be a simulation of the identified algorithms at work which automatically mark text comments as very negative, negative, neutral, positive and very positive. Your participation in the remaining part of the survey will help us establish how these algorithms can further be used to improve market research in terms of effectively analyzing the market's response to corporate social media posts.
All information collected as part of this research will strictly be treated in confidentiality with individual firms or people not identified.

Hello to everyone.
Tweets can be downloaded through the R with the Twitter API. Various filters can be used for these tweets (e.g. language, region, time period). While doing so, a word or hashtag is determined and the tweets containing these can be downloaded.
Well, is there any way to get tweets from a particular time frame or location without using any hashtags or words via Twitter API? I just want to get tweets using filters without any specific word or hashtag. I wonder if there is a function like that on Twitter's premium or enterprise API account?

For a common user, does Facebook differ from Twitter? And they care more about technological features or other things of different platform?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hey Xinlin
I can speak for identity from the standpoint of psychology as i am working with Facebook users identity in the field of cyberpsychology.
1) From the point of view of a common user -- The major difference between the two networks is the way information is passed.  On Facebook, you need to connect first with people before you share a content...while on Twitter, you can get quick info without any obligation to follow anyone.Facebook focuses on people and profiles - while Twitter focuses on the actual info shared.
2) Now cause the content on Facebook incorporates more personal information or focus on people and profiles of the user identity experimentation is a common phenomenon (there are a lot of studies shown identity experimentation by users) the issues such as impression management , social integration , information seeking all are the reasons users approach Facebook for.
3) Twitter on the other hand is essentially used for information seeking by everyday users and for probably entertainment purpose.Hence the chances of users identity experimentation in the above mentioned light has bleak chances.
4) I believe network affordances have great impact on users themselves and there identities.
Hope it gave some clarity.

Please tell me current problems and challenges for social media like facebook, twitter, youtube.

Answer
Even though you posted your question 3 years ago, I believe the major problem is still related to correct interpretation of context in which certain words are used.
It is still difficult for a vast majority of tools to precisely evaluate what truly is a negative, neutral, and a positive statement. I am not quite sure about the mechanics behind it, but at the moment it’s not advanced enough to successfully deal with sarcasm or context of some of the discussions.
Have a look at the example file I attached:
As you can see, this mention from Twitter was laballed as a negative one. The reason for it is the word “guilty” which in its essence is a negative one. However, in this particular case it was used jokingly and was not used in relation to any of the brands mentioned.
While it can be extremely helpful, there’s still a long way to go before sentiment analysis becomes more accurate. Even though it’s an automated process, marketers still need to evaluate themselves whether a negative mention is truly negative, for instance.

Until 2016, it was possible to develop apps that could mine Instagram information for analysis; a masters student of mine built her thesis around information processed through a custom-built tool. Then Instagram closed access, and apparently only commercial use is allowed, and through a difficult process.

Before you start using the API Platform, we have a few guidelines that we'd like to tell you about. Please make sure to read the full Platform Policy. Here's what you'll read about:
  1. Instagram users own their media. It's your responsibility to make sure that you respect that right.
  2. You cannot use "insta", "gram" or "Instagram" in your company or product name.
  3. You cannot replicate the core user experience of the Instagram apps or web site. For example, do not build a media viewer.
  4. You cannot use the API Platform to crawl or store users' media without their express consent.
  5. Do not abuse the API Platform, automate requests, or encourage unauthentic behavior. This will get your access turned off.

I have witnessed that most of the recent quantitative social media research studies which published in the top world ranked journals were employing statistical technique as simple as regression analysis and as advanced as SEM to a greater extent. However, almost every research is using convenient sampling. But still, most of the academia being as panel members of research viva voce are strictly expecting the sampling method to be random to perform such analysis techniques. I want expert scholarly insights on above issue.
Relevant answer
Answer
The non-probability technique of convenient sampling may be applicable in some circumstances, for example, to get a quick glimpse of an opinion poll using social media. For example, we have seen polls posted on Twitter, but this would be restricted to only those respondents who follow that particular researcher or who he/she follows.
However, where the sample has to be truly representative and the results from the sample are to be used to generalize to the population from which the sample was selected, then probability sampling is merited.

  2. Does the verified mark on Twitter guarantee that the account is not spreading fake news?
  3. Is there a special pattern regarding spreading fake news on Twitter?
  4. Is there any databases related to fake news on Twitter?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Gusti:
See this News Tracer tool developed by Reuters. According to Columbia Journalist Review, it "analyzes every tweet in real time—all 500 million or so each day" , and "assigns a credibility score based on the sorts of factors a human would look at, including the location and identity of the original poster, whether he or she is a verified user, how the tweet is propagating through the social network, and whether other people are confirming or denying the information. Crucially, Tracer checks tweets against an internal “knowledge base” of reliable sources. Here, human judgment combines with algorithmic intelligence: Reporters handpick trusted seed accounts, and the computer analyzes who they follow and retweet to find related accounts that might also be reliable."
Perhaps it will be also useful the paper about how to identify bots on twitter.

I would like you to share your understanding in response to the following:
a) Why sites like mystarbucksidea.force cannot be counted under social media? Even if such stakeholder engagement platforms are owned by companies that market directly, they can be spun off tomorrow to make them largely independent and broadbase themselves as general purpose social media.
Isn't there too much at stake for big companies to leave social media to few outside players like facebook and google+?
b) If social media continues to be increasingly powerful, it may eclipse or even subsume traditional media (print, broadcast etc.) that is mainstream media today. In such an event, it may no longer be possible to tell social media apart from other media and as a consequence; social media marketing apart from rest of marketing. It'll just be part of integrated marketing like what happened in the case of Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC).
Do you foresee a scenario in which almost all media shall be subsumed under social media?
Relevant answer
Answer
The so called “new media”  is the expression applied to social media and other online information networks which have turned into a major interactive resource dominating all aspects of the modern society. In particular, the amazing expansion of  social media  has evoked a number of  positive and negative reactions on the part of those affected by its widespread applications. Like you, many consider social media as a serious threat to traditional media perceiving an imminent eclipse. The main reasoning is that there is a tremendous demand for global communication and social media platforms have been able to  alter  communities and decision making bodies due to their  ease of accessibility, quick interactivity, and fantastic opportunities. While not denying the importance of social media in creating and strengthening relationships, there are  individuals who strongly believe that information sharing space is not the best place for confiding to others private information  disclosing personal thoughts . Exemplifying this is the case of  cyber threats in social networking , which have questioned social media  credibility and honest communication. However, dramatic advances in social media  applications from politics to commerce, to academic circles ,to news reading and advertising reveal that future prospects all herald  a scenario in which almost all media would be subsumed under social media.

  1. You'll be surprised that Gen X also use SM at work just as much as Gen Y. A lot of businesses promote SM "use" to engage with with customers, source new leads etc. The psychology behind it is quite complex to just assume that only Gen Y will be the main users of SM at work.

Companies have started branding products and services via social media like FB, You tube etc. I am trying to look if a similar framework can be used by organizations to brand themselves as great places to work and what kind of impact such branding would have on potential applicants.
Relevant answer
Answer
A brand is the idea the public has about the business.  The business "brands" itself by working to influence the public perception.  All channels of communication must reinforce this brand identity the company wants to promote.
Yes, there are certainly companies out there whose brands include being a good place to work.  They cannot simply SAY it is a good place.  They have to provide evidence again and again, and all contact the public has with the company must be consistent, including those messages the company cannot directly control.
For example, if a company claims to be a great place to work, but then we see news stories about union problems, it is not a consistent message and the public will not be as easily persuaded.

Hello, Researchers,
If you use anything of the Memes rule the World dataset slide show attached below, I will appreciate a citation. This is MLA format.
McMillan, Gloria. "Effects of Facebook Memes on the Brain." ResearchGate Accessed 28 Jul 2018. https://www.researchgate.net/post/Effects_of_Facebook_Memes_on_the_brain
Question:
Is anyone studying the costs and benefits of "meme trading" on social media?  Is the effect more negative?  That is, causing fewer neural connections to be formed because passing on "junk memes' is so low cognitive activity.  OR is there some burst of neural development that comes from passing on many slogans and posters?
I  wonder if the cognitive developmental of Facebook and other social media "memes" are being studied.
Older adults tend to use "boilerplate" language when they tell stories.  Key words will trigger a story told with identical phrases.  These older adults are not creating new neural connections, or very few, when they repeat the same phrases.  Do memes function this way and what are their effects on much younger people?
Relevant answer
Answer
Actually, I ''stole'' it from the David Lean masterpiece, 'Lawrence of Arabia', one of the truly great films.
Would be a bit more happy with it tough, Gloria, if we remembered--and as this year's billion-dollar election/jokefest clearly showed--that the 'progressive'Left can be as hate-filled (and hate-inducing) as the reactionary right.
SALON is a rag, but there was one good article a while ago on the election in which an unnamed but very senior pollster was quoted as opining: 'All that the 2016 election really comes down to is that economically under-privileged heterosexual white males finally figured out a way to do identity politics of their own. It's called Donald Trump.' (paraphrase).
The nice thing about IT is that absolutely anybody can use it for any purpose whatsoever--just like with nukes.

I am currently working on my dissertation and am studying why some people create and share content in online communities and some do not. Does anyone know a valid instrument I can use?
Relevant answer
Answer
People choose to contribute to content focused communities after they decide that the potential benefits of supplying their knowledge to the network outweighs the effort needed to produce the content asset. Take the case of RG: researchers publish content in the hope of getting recognition for their hard work doing research, or perhaps to connect with other similar researchers, or maybe they are looking for new research opportunities and funding. Since the content (mostly research articles) has already been produced for other purposes it is quite easy for researchers to convince themselves on the benefits of publishing their work on here.
The marginal utility gained from posting an article is thus positive and will increase with each reaction (like, distribution) gained. This will lead to even more knowledge sharing and interaction within the network.
On the contrary if the researcher decides that the opportunity cost of creating and publishing content on this particular network is higher than posting to another network then they will be less likely to contribute.
I think it mostly has to do with perceived benefits and instant gratification but I am no expert so I might be wrong.
It would help if you could share more details about your intended study: the hypothesis you're putting forward and the methodology you want to use so that the community can provide more relevant input.
Good luck with your research!

So, Hornet is currently the most popular geo-social dating application for gay/bi men in Turkey. That is why I decided to study interactions there and my intention is to draw my sample for the quantitative part of the research from discreet Hornet users. Problem is those users are discreet meaning that they either have no picture on their profile (they don't see them unless they contact you), or they have pictures of part of their bodies, or random pics on their profile. Some of them identify their discreet status with hashtags. Anyways, I assume that maybe there are 1000-2000 Online hornet users on average at any time in a day in Turkey.
What should be the sample size for the survey, quantitative part?
How would you go about contacting those discreet members of the application?
Would you perhaps create a researcher account explicitly stating that you look for   Discreet users?
Or, how about individually contacting people on the platform? Would it be representative and/or ethical?
i have no field experience in social sciences, especially quantitative research. So I wonder how would you go about collecting this data?
Relevant answer
Answer
Selecting study participants is always challenging, especially from a population that may not wish to be selected for the characteristics you are interested in (i.e. sexuality). I would also recommend the "researcher account" approach, as you will allow your study participants to self-select. However, you are then limited to people who see your account/ad, and who were comfortable enough to reach out to you, giving implicit limitations to your participant pool. You could also use snowball method (also called key informant method) and ask your self-selecting participants to identify others within their social networks who also use the dating app, thereby expanding your reach.
By discreetly asking for study participants that is practically impossible to know if your selection is truly "representative" of the community as a whole.  However, if you are interested in saturation of data content rather than representation across a total sample, you may be able to achieve that through interviews with your participants. I suppose it really depends on your research question and what type of information you are hoping to collect from your participants.
