Last year, SAGE, the National Centre for Social Research and the Oxford Internet Institute set up a network for social media researchers with funding from the National Centre for Research Methods. The aim of the network was to bring together researchers from across disciplines and sectors who have an interest in using social media within social research and we now have over 500 network members worldwide.
You can see an overview of the network goals and activities and what we’ve achieved so far here.
There will be several chances to hear what has been achieved in the first year: we are holding a one-day conference on April 16th 2013 in London. Places are free but are strictly limited: if you would like a place please contact Mithu Lucraft to request an application form.
We are also running a One Year On Digital Debate on 23rd April 2013 to give people a chance to participate in the discussions arising from the conference. If you are interested in this digital event then please register here.
