Social Media in Social Research London Conference 2013

SRA

Our senior researcher Amanda is looking forward to attending the Social Research Association’s annual conference on Monday 24th June in London. The daylong event is titled ‘Social Media in Social Research’ and will explore the value of social media to social researchers. The programme is chockfull with interesting speakers from the world of social research including academics with experience in researching social media and representatives from NatCen (National Centre for Social Research). The day will cover a number of thought-provoking areas including using social media to enhance research activity, understanding the ethical implications of social media research and exploring the behaviour of social media users. There will also be a skills workshop to help researchers develop their technical know-how. Amanda says, “I am keen to discover more about the hot topics surrounding social media in social research and to consider how things are taking shape in this new and changing area of research. I think it is really important to understand the value of social media research and how this can be conducted using competent methodologies which also consider the wider ethical and technical implications. I’m excited about learning new skills and look forward to giving feedback to the team at Mackman.”
