Session description:

The dissemination and use of social media have grown widely worldwide in the last 15 years. Social media influence politics and economics and redefine identity, social practices, and lifestyles. In the era of “Big Data”, the ubiquity and quantity of content created every day by social media provide great opportunities and unique challenges for applying network analytics to unstructured data, such as social media interactions and textual contents. In big data applications, graphs are huge, with thousands, even millions of nodes and edges. Graph spectra, graph summarization and network sampling techniques can be employed to understand the information encoded in large graphs. In addition, graph theory and network analytics can help in inferring information and analysing community structures in social media networks. Social Network Analysis can provide insights into different research fields, such as computational propaganda, dis/misinformation mining, fake news and bot detection, opinion and emotion mining, virtual community of practice.
