The Social Media Analytics team is moving forward with plans for a cross-campus partnership with Indiana University on the Social Media Macroscope. The Social Media Macroscope will provide researchers with one-stop access to tools to collect, analyze and store social data for research and reproducibility.
The team is working to collect tool requirements from researchers on both campuses in preparation for grant applications in the fall of 2017. A Macroscope proof-of-concept is being planned and is expected to be operational by the end summer of 2017.
