... With this new edition, Mining the Social Web is more important than ever.

 

While we’re seeing more and more cynicism about the value of data, and particularly “big data,” that cynicism isn’t shared by most people who actually work with data. Data has undoubtedly been overhyped and oversold, but the best way to arm yourself against the hype machine is to start working with data yourself, to find out what you can and can’t learn. And there’s no shortage of data around.

 

Everything we do leaves a cloud of data behind it: Twitter, Facebook, Google+ — to say nothing of the thousands of other social sites out there, such as Pinterest, Yelp, Foursquare, you name it. Google is doing a great job of mining your data for value. Why shouldn’t you?

There are few better ways to learn about mining social data than by starting with Twitter; Twitter is really a ready-made laboratory for the new data scientist. And this book is without a doubt the best and most thorough approach to mining Twitter data out there. But that’s only a starting point. We hear a lot in the press about sentiment analysis and mining unstructured text data; this book shows you how to do it. If you need to mine the data in web pages or email archives, this book shows you how. And if you want to understand how to people collaborate on projects,Mining the Social Web is the only place I’ve seen that analyzes GitHub data.
