Abstract
: This tutorial proposes and demonstrates a new holistic approach to computational social science in general and big social data analytics in particular based on the social philosophy of associations, mathematics of set theory and the methods of social set analysis. The set theoretical approach addresses current theoretical challenges and methodological limitations in computational social science in general and big social data analytics in particular about social structure vs. individual agency, social order vs. complexity, common method bias, and endogeneity. This tutorial will contain both “show-and-tell” demos and “hands-on” training for formally modelling massive volumes of big social data constituting individual human online interactions as unordered sets with ideas, values, objects, artefacts, and social others and conducting event studies of a social media crises dataset from Facebook.
