Twitter releasing trove of user data to scientists for research

Twitter releasing trove of user data to scientists for research | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Data uses include measuring happiness levels in cities based on Twitter images shared.


Twitter has a 200-million-strong and ever-growing user base that broadcasts 500 million updates daily. It has been lauded for its ability to unsettle repressive political regimes, bring much-neededaccountability to corporations that mistreat their customers, and combat other societal ills (whether such characterizations are, in fact, accurate).


Now, the company has taken aim at disrupting another important sphere of human society: the scientific research community.


In response, computational epidemiologists Caitlin Rivers and Bryan Lewis have proposed guidelines for ethical research practices when using social media data, such as avoiding personally identifiable information and making all the results publicly available.

.

Whether or not Twitter and the scientists who have access to the company's data follow such guideposts, one thing is clear—the trend of mining social media data for various purposes won’t be tapering off anytime soon.

So, what would I do if I were Google? Reset expectations. Say “this is really a product for 2020 that we’re gonna build with you.” First release is in 2014, but let’s be honest, if it’s $600 and dorky looking, it’ll be doomed — as long as expectations are so high.

Überwachung: Facebook kauft Tracking-App | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Facebook hat die Tracking-App Moves gekauft. Damit könnte Facebook seine User komplett überwachen und Bewegungsdaten für Werbung vermarkten.


Facebook hat die Tracking-App Moves gekauft. Das gab der App-Entwickler auf seiner Website bekannt. Der Fitness-Tracker zeichnet ununterbrochen Ihre Aktivitäten auf, wenn Sie die App auf Ihrem iPhone oder Android-Smartphone installiert haben. Damit weiß Moves - und künftig auch Facebook - wo Sie sich wie lange aufgehalten haben.

Warum Facebook auf diese Daten scharf ist, ist klar:

Zu wissen, wer wann wo ist, lässt sich teuer vermarkten, zum Beispiel für Werbeanzeigen mit lokalem Bezug. In der Innenstadt mal kurz Facebook checken und dabei Werbung für den Schuhladen auf dem Weg zu bekommen – das könnte eine Zukunftsperspektive sein.

Facebook sued for allegedly scanning your private messages

Facebook sued for allegedly scanning your private messages | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
A class-action suit claims that the social networking site monitors and uses your messages for advertising purposes.

 

The class-action lawsuit, submitted by Arkansas lawyer Matt Campbell and Michael Hurley from Oregon on Monday at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, says that the social networking giant monitors users' private messages in order to compile and mine data which can be used to profile web activity.

 

===> This data can then allegedly be used for profit through sales to marketers and advertisers -- who then can target ads based on the user's online behavior. <===
