Social Media Scraping for Qualitative Research (NYCDH Week Workshop)
This workshop will introduce the basics of using small-scale web scraping of social media for qualitative analysis. Using NCapture, a web browser extension, and NVivo, a qualitative analysis software package, this session will focus on methods to incorporate the context from web pages, online PDFs, and social media into your research design. Presenters will provide detailed examples for importing and coding Facebook and Twitter data using the NVivo software platform. In addition, discussions may include topics such as collecting, storing, and reporting social media data as academic researchers. Brief overview of aims of Qualitative Research and NVivo Software will be provided. Please note that this workshop will not cover larger data sets and web scraping using tools like Python or R.
