vosonSML R package
Note: vosonSML is the new name for the R package that was previously called SocialMediaLab. Some of the materials below refer to the old package name.
vosonSML is an R package that provides a suite of tools for collecting and constructing networks from social media data. It provides easy-to-use functions for collecting data across popular platforms (*Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube) and generating different types of networks for analysis.
vosonSML was originally created by Tim Graham and Robert Ackland. Major contributions have been made by Bryan Gertzel (who is also the maintainer of the package) and Chung-hong Chan.
Note that due to Instagram API changes effective 1 June 2016, vosonSML can no longer provide access to Instagram data.
The present page provides some R scripts to help get you started using vosonSML and also information on associated training workshops and obtaining API access (*Facebook, Twitter, YouTube).
