Abstract:
  At the time of writing, there are limited examples of Instagram analysis, although there is an enthusiasm to conduct more research in this area. We would like to pitch this workshop towards those who have a high interest in using Instagram for social research but have low to medium skills in analysing and communicating the data.

We would also like to explore the idea of using the workshop format almost like a scaled down version of a data sprint or data hackathon to teach participants analysis skills.

This workshop would be particularly relevant to the conference themes of Big and Small Data, Social Network Analysis and Online Community Detection.

Pre-Workshop Prep: 

If you want to participate in the analytics breakout group you may want to download Gephi (https://gephi.org/) on your laptop ahead of time. (One caveat though: if your laptop is slow or not so powerful you may not be able to run Gephi.)

Note from the workshop organizers: 

*******************************************************************

We’re aware that the changes to the Instagram API has greatly changed our ability to do research since we pitched this workshop.

Because we anticipate questions about the API changes, we’ve shifted the focus of the workshop to account for that.

Here’s a brief outline of the workshop:

  • How we were previously able to do research with Instagram
  • Changes to the Instagram API and what that means for social research, including some alternatives.
  • Analysis methods for Instagram data.
  • Breakout groups for further discussion on: a) further API questions, b) analysis software (Gephi and Tableau) and c) ethics of Instagram research

A note on breakout groups

Depending on where the API breakout group takes the discussion, you may want to bring your laptop to try out some code.

If you want to participate in the analytics breakout group you may want to download the software on your laptop ahead of time. One caveat though: if your laptop is slow or not so powerful you may not be able to run Gephi. 

The ethics of Instagram breakout group will be a discussion group, so no tech is required.

We look forward to seeing you!

Jess, Andreas, Samantha and Andy
