Twitter and the Social Unconscious: how tweets and blogs go far beyond the individual

Twitter and the Social Unconscious: how tweets and blogs go far beyond the individual | Digitally speaking | Scoop.it
What does twitter tell us about our social unconscious? Studies are just beginning to scratch the surface of the meaning behind the cacophony of noise we humans put online, but what might be the meaning behind this collective activity?

luiy's curator insight, April 8, 2013 11:37 AM

The coolest I’ve found yet (thanks to David Patman) has been the We Feel Fine project defined as “an exploration of human emotion, in six movements. This project searches weblogs across the world for words associated with the statements “I feel” and “I am feeling” and records the feeling associated with that statement”. To quote from their website:

The result is a database of several million human feelings, increasing by 15,000 – 20,000 new feelings per day. Using a series of playful interfaces, the feelings can be searched and sorted across a number of demographic slices, offering responses to specific questions like: do Europeans feel sad more often than Americans? Do women feel fat more often than men? Does rainy weather affect how we feel? What are the most representative feelings of female New Yorkers in their 20s? What do people feel about right now in Baghdad? What were people feeling on Valentines’ Day? Which are the happiest cities in the world? The saddest? And so on.

There is a stunning graphic in which you can see, in real time, groupings and clusterings of feelings as they occur. Interestingly, you can filter your searches by feeling, gender, age, weather, location or date, and then view your search in a variety of visually interesting ways.

When I looked at it at 8:55 on Tuesday morning the 3rd of July I could see that in Britain the dominant feeling was “better” (circa 130,000 people) followed by “bad” (93,000 then) “good” (77,000). By clicking on individual nodes, you can even gain access to the original text. By doing this, you can get a great deal of detail about the context, as well as the feeling tone. The creators Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar should be highly commended for this work.

Is Content King? Thomson Reuters Editor And Taboola CEO Say -- "Maybe"

Is Content King? Thomson Reuters Editor And Taboola CEO Say -- "Maybe" | Digitally speaking | Scoop.it
Imagine you knew you could write the best article of your life, but no one would ever read it. Would you bother?

 

I asked Dan Colarusso, Global Head of Programming of Thomson Reuters, this question over breakfast in New York’s West Village a week ago. If there’s anyone who understands content, it’s Dan – given his background in infusing content with passion for companies such as Bloomberg, CNBC, New York Post, as well as a host of others.

Innovating Pedagogy | Open University Innovations Report #1

Innovating Pedagogy | Open University Innovations Report #1 | Digitally speaking | Scoop.it

"The series of reports explores new forms of teaching, learning and assessment for an interactive world, to guide teachers and policy makers in productive innovation.

The first report proposes ten innovations that are already in currency but have not yet had a profound influence on education."

These 10 innovations include:

* Assessment for learning

* Badges to accredit learning

* Learning analytics

* MOOCs

* New pedagogy for e-books

* Personal inquiry learning

* Publisher led mini-courses

* Rebirth of academic publishing

* Rhizomatic learning

* Seamless learning

 

I was led to this report through a post by Martin Weller: http://nogoodreason.typepad.co.uk/no_good_reason/2012/07/innovating-pedagogy-report.html

 

PDF available for download and opportunity to comment on the report in the accompanying blog.

Do you have Facebook?

I came to this through @cristinacost's blog post about why Facebook and teaching don't go together. Is it irresponsible of educators to get involved with Facebook? The same goes for any use of Facebook to support health too. What is your reaction to this? Are we under or over-estimating the sophistication of Facebook users?
