This workshop aims to focus attention on the dynamics of action and reaction and related user-generated content (comments, tags, answers), capable of telling points of view on the dynamics of public conversation on social media which do not emerge from conventional analytic systems.

Through the examination of the public APIs of major social media platforms, the construction of complex databases will be reached, followed by the production of interactive dashboards to simplify the information and collect material for analysis and reflection.

The workshop is open to participants with different backgrounds. It does not require special coding skills, and the tools to be used in the workshop will be user friendly and free.
