VOSON Dashboard is an R/Shiny application for collecting and analysing online networks and associated text data. It builds on a number of R packages, in particular igraph (for network analysis) and VOSON SML, with a visual user interface to facilitate user experience. VOSON SML 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.
Important! Facebook collection in vosonSML is broken, due to changes in the API (v2.11) which came into effect in February 2018. It is not possible to collect data on likes or comments on posts on Facebook pages, unless the API access token is created by the page's owner.
