The Post-API Age Reconsidered: Social Media Research in the '20s and Beyond
Deen Freelon, University of North Carolina

This talk is available on YouTube right now! Watch it here. Then join us on August 11 at 12pm EDT for a Q&A with Dr. Freelon.

Abstract: This talk explores the changes that different social media platforms have made to their API and the ways in which researchers can access and analyze data from those sites. Dr. Freelon also talks about a research project he is currently working on with Facebook and how the relationship between platform and researcher is made, and what expectations other researchers should have if they choose to work with social media platforms directly.
This next lecture will be delivered live TONIGHT, August 5, at 7:30pm EDT on Zoom. You can join with this link right here.

Data Collection Methods in the Age of Data Science: Where Are We Headed?

Speaker: Michael Link, Abt Associates
Abstract: The talk focuses on three key areas: (1) understanding how the field of data science relates to traditional survey research efforts; (2) discussing ways in which key methods and tools are being applied to and transforming survey research; and, (3) delineating some of the key advantages and disadvantages of leveraging data science in survey research efforts. We conclude with a look at where the field of data science is going and its longer term implications for how we measure and understand attitudes and behaviors.
