Social media is being adopted and applied in almost every area of human activity, be it for personal applications, in education, for commercial applications or in the public sector. The rapid uptake of social media is related to many factors including its ease of use and adaptability to different devices. However, it also poses some challenges and problems that need to be addressed and discussed.

Computational Fake News Analysis: A Practical Workshop
Description:

The recent past has highlighted the influential role of social networks and other digital media in shaping public debate on current affairs and political issues. Disinformation and the alternative media ecosystem distort societal debates, increase polarisation, and threaten participatory democracy. For instance, the surprising success of Brexit and Trump’s election has been, at least partially, attributed to the unprecedented weave of false information that in both cases have polluted online debate before the vote.

CSH Seminar Talk
Description:

While Information Communication Technology (ICT) has offered us news ways to communicate and socially interact, it leaves behind digital traces of our individual behavior as records of ever-growing datasets. The study of such data using computational analysis and modeling with Network Theory approach can give us unprecedented insight into human sociality and to the structures and processes of social life and the society. This is well-demonstrated by our analysis of the dataset of mobile phone communication-logs, confirming the Granovetterian picture for the social network structure, i.e.

Polarization on Social Media

Description:

This tutorial presents a systematic review of the study of polarization as manifested online, in particular on social media. In the first part, we clarify the concept of polarization, and the related nomenclature, by drawing from the social and political sciences. Then, we focus on the understanding of polarization as manifested online. In the second part, we review techniques for detection, quantification, and mitigation of polarization. Specifically, we show how content and network structure of social media can be used to these ends.
