Measuring networks: The limitations of how we try to understand online activity - Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard | Scoopedia |

A new report from two fellows at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society is out today: “Measuring Internet Activity: A (Selective) Review of Methods and Metrics” breaks down attempts at measuring the impact of the Internet into three categories — infrastructure and access, control, and online content and communities. The main takeaway: Our methods for measuring online activity are fragmented and usually offer only an incomplete, if tantalizing, picture of how people learn and communicate online.
