PAA 2017 Social Media Workshop
26 April 2017
||Twitter API module|
||Facebook Marketing API module|
||Introduction to APIs and Demographic Research with Social Media|
Hands-on activities related to accessing social media data (Twitter data and Facebook data for Advertisers).
In order to access data from Twitter and Facebook, you would need an account and you would need to get the appropriate credentials from Twitter and Facebook. To create Facebook and Twitter credentials, follow the obtain credentials instructions in each module.
Finally, in terms of software we will use mainly R/Rstudio. For one module, we will show an example using Python, as the best package is currently available only in Python. No prior knowledge of Python is expected. However, it would be helpful if you could install Python in your laptop (with the Anaconda package management system: it automatically installs modules essential to the workshop such as IPython notebooks).
