  8. Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social Media

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A12aT009

    The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing structural sources of information (e.g. social network topology) with non-structural sources (message ...
