Hi Jan. Are you aware that when A Broader View rescoops your work, it ends up on his Facebook page and you are not given credit or it? Apparently working wonders for his Klout score!

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.

Why Twitter makes you feel good

Why Twitter makes you feel good | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Researchers at Harvard took the time to dig into our brains to figure out why 40 percent of our daily speech is centered around telling others what we think and feel. And the reason? Because it feels so good!

 

In a series of experiments, they compared the feeling one gets from eating food, getting money or having sex with the feeling one gets from disclosing information about oneself. The study revealed that the feeling one gets from all of the above is strikingly similar, they all give the same feel-good feeling. This explains why we tweet and update about ourselves so often. It seems that self-disclosure activates the mesolimbic dopaminergic system of the brain, which is associated with the same rewarding feeling as getting money or sex.

 

===> So Tweeps, now you know what to do when you have the blues: start tweeting and updating your status! <===
