What is SOCIAL MEDIA MINING? What does SOCIAL MEDIA MINING mean? SOCIAL MEDIA MINING meaning - SOCIAL MEDIA MINING definition - SOCIAL MEDIA MINING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Social media mining is the process of representing, analyzing, and extracting actionable patterns and trends from raw social media data. The term "mining" is an analogy to the resource extraction process of mining for rare minerals. Resource extraction mining requires mining companies to sift through vast quanitites of raw ore to find the precious minerals; likewise, social media "mining" requires human data analysts and automated software programs to sift through massive amounts of raw social media data (e.g., on social media usage, online behaviours, sharing of content, connections between individuals, online buying behaviour, etc.) in order to discern patterns and trends. These patterns and trends are of interest to companies, governments and not-for-profit organizations, as these organizations can use these patterns and trends to design their strategies or introduce new programs (or, for companies, new products, processes and services). Social media mining uses a range of basic concepts from computer science, data mining, machine learning and statistics. Social media miners develop algorithms suitable for investigating massive files of social media data. Social media mining is based on theories and methodologies from social network analysis, network science, sociology, ethnography, optimization and mathematics. It encompasses the tools to formally represent, measure, model, and mine meaningful patterns from large-scale social media data. In the 2010s, major corporations, as well as governments and not-for-profit organizations engage in social media mining to find out more about key populations of interest, which, depending on the organization carrying out the "mining", may be customers, clients, or citizens. As defined by Kaplan and Haenlein, social media is the "group of internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, and that allow the creation and exchange of user-generated content." There are many categories of social media including, but not limited to, social networking (Facebook or LinkedIn), microblogging (Twitter), photo sharing (Flickr, Photobucket, or Picasa), news aggregation (Google reader, StumbleUpon, or Feedburner), video sharing (YouTube, MetaCafe), livecasting (Ustream or Twitch.tv), virtual worlds (Kaneva), social gaming (World of Warcraft), social search (Google, Bing, or Ask.com), and instant messaging (Google Talk, Skype, or Yahoo! messenger). The first social media website was introduced by GeoCities in 1994. It enabled users to create their own homepages without having a sophisticated knowledge of HTML coding. The first social networking site, SixDegree.com, was introduced in 1997. Since then, many other social media sites have been introduced, each providing service to millions of people. These individuals form a virtual world in which individuals (social atoms), entities (content, sites, etc.) and interactions (between individuals, between entities, between individuals and entities) coexist. Social norms and human behavior govern this virtual world. By understanding these social norms and models of human behavior and combining them with the observations and measurements of this virtual world, one can systematically analyze and mine social media. Social media mining is the process of representing, analyzing, and extracting meaningful patterns from data in social media, resulting from social interactions. It is an interdisciplinary field encompassing techniques from computer science, data mining, machine learning, social network analysis, network science, sociology, ethnography, statistics, optimization, and mathematics. Social media mining faces grand challenges such as the big data paradox, obtaining sufficient samples, the noise removal fallacy, and evaluation dilemma. Social media mining represents the virtual world of social media in a computable way, measures it, and designs models that can help us understand its interactions. In addition, social media mining provides necessary tools to mine this world for interesting patterns, analyze information diffusion, study influence and homophily, provide effective recommendations, and analyze novel social behavior in social media.

Data mining algorithms are focused on finding frequently occurring patterns in historical data. These techniques are useful in many domains, but for fraud detection it is exactly the opposite. Rather than being a pattern repeatedly popping up in a data set, fraud is an uncommon, well-considered, imperceptibly concealed, time-evolving and often carefully organized crime which appears in many types and forms. As traditional techniques often fail to identify fraudulent behavior, social network analysis offers new insights in the propagation of fraud through a network. Indeed, fraud is not something an individual would commit by himself, but is often organized by groups of people loosely connected to each other. The use of networked data in fraud detection becomes increasingly important to uncover fraudulent patterns and to detect in real-time when certain processes show some characteristics of irregular activities. Although analyses focus in the first place on fraud detection, the emphasis should shift towards fraud prevention, i.e. detecting fraud before it is even committed. As fraud is a time-evolving phenomenon, social network algorithms succeed to keep ahead of new types of fraud and to adapt to changing environment and surrounding effects.

A Comprehensive Study on Social Network Mental Disorders Detection via Online Social Media Mining in Python To get this project in ONLINE or through TRAINING Sessions, Contact: JP INFOTECH, #37, Kamaraj Salai,Thattanchavady, Puducherry -9. Mobile: (0)9952649690, Email: [email protected], Website: https://www.jpinfotech.org The explosive growth in popularity of social networking leads to the problematic usage. An increasing number of social network mental disorders (SNMDs), such as Cyber-Relationship Addiction, Information Overload, and Net Compulsion, have been recently noted. Symptoms of these mental disorders are usually observed passively today, resulting in delayed clinical intervention. In this paper, we argue that mining online social behavior provides an opportunity to actively identify SNMDs at an early stage. It is challenging to detect SNMDs because the mental status cannot be directly observed from online social activity logs. Our approach, new and innovative to the practice of SNMD detection, does not rely on self-revealing of those mental factors via questionnaires in Psychology. Instead, we propose a machine learning framework, namely, Social Network Mental Disorder Detection (SNMDD), that exploits features extracted from social network data to accurately identify potential cases of SNMDs. We also exploit multi-source learning in SNMDD and propose a new SNMD-based Tensor Model (STM) to improve the accuracy. To increase the scalability of STM, we further improve the efficiency with performance guarantee. Our framework is evaluated via a user study with 3126 online social network users. We conduct a feature analysis, and also apply SNMDD on large-scale datasets and analyze the characteristics of the three SNMD types. The results manifest that SNMDD is promising for identifying online social network users with potential SNMDs. python machine learning projects Python Python ieee projects Python ieee projects 2018 python student projects python academic projects machine learning ieee papers machine learning papers 2018 python final year project machine learning final year project

Social media analytics combines traditional business data with social media data in meaningful ways results in analytics innovation. For example, if a buyer in a major retail chain, does not fully understand the optimal time to stock soccer merchandise in key cities across Asia. He or She can turn to the social data streams, to see when people in the store locales are tweeting or posting about soccer or their favourite teams. Monitoring social media helps businesses find breakout products. Social media data is found data, and provides business and governments with an ability to observe naturally occurring conversations in message boards online, social networks and blogs to get answers about their key demographics. Data mining the social media streams of such large numbers of passive participants in natural settings, helps bring to bear the expertise, technologies, and solutions of the next generation recommender systems. These systems build on big data psychology and mental heuristics to help consumers overcome the tsunami of information.

PyData London 2016 Social media can be used to perceive the relationships between individuals, companies and brands. Understanding the relationships between key entities is of vital importance for decision support in a swathe of industries. We present a real-time method to query and visualise regions of networks that could represent an industries, sports or political parties etc. There is a growing realisation that to combat the waning effectiveness of traditional marketing, social media platform owners need to find new ways to monetise their data. Social media data contains rich information describing how real world entities relate to each other. Understanding the allegiances, communities and structure of key entities is of vital importance for decision support in a swathe of industries that have hitherto relied on expensive, small scale survey data. We present a real-time method to query and visualise regions of networks that are closely related to a set of input vertices. The input vertices can define an industry, political party, sport etc. The key idea is that in large digital social networks measuring similarity via direct connections between nodes is not robust, but that robust similarities between nodes can be attained through the similarity of their neighbourhood graphs. We are able to achieve real-time performance by compressing the neighbourhood graphs using minhash signatures and facilitate rapid queries through Locality Sensitive Hashing. These techniques reduce query times from hours using industrial desktop machines to milliseconds on standard laptops. Our method allows analysts to interactively explore strongly associated regions of large networks in real time. Our work has been deployed in Python based software and uses the scipy stack (specifically numpy, pandas, scikit-learn and matplotlib) as well as the python igraph implementation.

Collection starts October 18. If you have any "suspect" exposure, you have only a few more days to take it down. One of VisaCoach's clients has already experienced denial due to his Facebook presence. This couple's case was as near perfect as we have seen. They were young and in love. They had known each other for a few years and had met more than once. They were evenly matched by age, values and religion. Their "front loaded" petition was awesome and included many solid evidences of their bona fides. The American sponsor even accompanied his fiancé to the interview to demonstrate his sincerity and support for the petition. After a brief interview where the sponsor was not allowed to join in nor asked any questions before, during or after, the consular officer, denied the case. The couple was devastated and confused. What could have gone wrong? A consular officer who exhibits professionalism will state the reasons for denial in writing. And provide this to the rejected applicant immediately, often at the close of the interview itself. You may not agree with the decision, but at least know what it was and then have a starting point for renewed efforts. The officer refused to provide any verbal or written explanation. All the couple had was the fiancee's memory of the interview. I asked her to write a transcript of what happened, to recall exactly what was said and even what the body language was, so that we could study this in an attempt to reconstruct what MIGHT have been in the consular officer’s mind. What seemed odd and out of context, was the consular officer made some comments about "conservative values" and what is a "woman's role in society and in the home". Those comments seemed rather strange at the time and the foreign born fiancé had no idea where those comments came from. Eventually it dawned on us. The American sponsor is active on FaceBook. He is outspoken and his views are somewhat "anti feminist". He had posted on his social media pages, and entered into many online debates, his ideas on conservative values, and HIS ideas about a women's role in the home and society. He is not a bad guy. Not a bad husband. He was just expressing his free speech. He just had some strong views that are not popular, that are not considered "politically correct". The consular officer did her own internet search, found his activity and "Was NOT amused", and denied, putting this loving couple's life's on hold. Was it fair or reasonable that they were denied?. No, I don't think so. Happy end to the story. We took down his Facebook account, reapplied, and six months later they had their visa and began their married life together in Alaska. One random consular officer searching on Facebook ended in a denial. What will happen when ALL Fiance and Spouse applications are accompanied by a detailed dossier of one's online statements, comments jokes, embarrassments, positive and negative feedback from friends or trolls? Expect disaster. Expect many more denials, simply due to exercising a US Citizen's right to free speech. In Conclusion: "Freedom of Speech", doesn't mean freedom to get your visa. The prudent path is prior to applying for a Fiance or Spouse visa to make sure there are no skeletons in your online closet. Clean or temporarily remove, or make private, potentially controversial aspects of your online and public presence before proceeding with your visa application.

Abstract—Students’ informal conversations on social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook) shed light into their educational experiences—opinions, feelings, and concerns about the learning process. Data from such uninstrumented environments can provide valuable knowledge to inform student learning. Analyzing such data, however, can be challenging. The complexity of students’ experiences reflected from social media content requires human interpretation. However, the growing scale of data demands automatic data analysis techniques. In this paper, we developed a workflow to integrate both qualitative analysis and large-scale data mining techniques. We focused on engineering students’ Twitter posts to understand issues and problems in their educational experiences. We first conducted a qualitative analysis on samples taken from about 25,000 tweets related to engineering students’ college life. We found engineering students encounter problems such as heavy study load, lack of social engagement, and sleep deprivation. Based on these results, we implemented a multi-label classification algorithm to classify tweets reflecting students’ problems. We then used the algorithm to train a detector of student problems from about 35,000 tweets streamed at the geo-location of Purdue University. This work, for the first time, presents a methodology and results that show how informal social media data can provide insights into students’ experiences.

In this paper, we developed a workflow to integrate both qualitative analysis and large-scale data mining techniques. We focused on engineering students’ Twitter posts to understand issues and problems in their educational experiences. We first conducted a qualitative analysis on samples taken from about 25,000 tweets related to engineering students’ college life. We found engineering students encounter problems such as heavy study load, lack of social engagement, and sleep deprivation. Based on these results, we implemented a multi label classification algorithm to classify tweets reflecting students’ problems. We then used the algorithm to train a detector of student problems from tweets streamed at the geo-location of Purdue University. This work, for the first time, presents a methodology and results that show how informal social media data can provide insights into students’ experiences.

Hundreds of millions of people spending countless hours on social media to share, communicate, connect, interact, and create user-generated data. Using data mining, machine learning, text mining, social network analysis, and information retrieval, we could mine valuable knowledge for social science researches and business marketing proposes. This project was our graduation project. we used a real data from Facebook to give a proper recommendation for users about movies and series due to the social group that our users belongs to, we also managed to recommend friends to a user due to interests similarity.

This video is seventh in a series for **absolute beginners** who would like to use an inexpensive, accessible computer called the Raspberry Pi in order to carry out social media data mining and analysis. In this installment, I walk through the process for storing social media data you've collected in the universally-accessible delimited format called CSV. We use the Python library CSV and consider ways to make a CSV format better organized and more useful. Coming up in installment number 8: working with Twitter and the csv.writer command to form data into appropriate shapes to characterize links, hashtags and relationships.
