The objective of this 2-day event is to bring together experts in social media and online social networks from both the academic and business worlds to share ideas on the best practices around how to study the impact of social media on our society, and specifically how to measure influence on social media. The workshop will provide researchers in this area an opportunity to present and debate their ideas, and provide graduate students with the opportunity to build academic and professional contacts, present their research, and learn about the latest research in this area from a multidisciplinary perspective.
During the first day (Symposium), the participants will present and conduct discussions based on their work in this area. On the second day (Workshop), the participants will be tasked to brainstorm and develop new metrics for studying and measuring influence and engagement on social media.
