Method development

Updates from the methodology team

Various tools to extract Instagram data has been used in previous research. However, these also include methods that are questionable, subsequently banned for research use or otherwise not fit for our research project objectives.

Fortunately, weekly methodology café sessions and discussions with university researchers on finding an applicable tool have proved to be helpful in every way and we will pursue on that.

While we continue our work with acquiring data from Instagram, we will prepare a demo with Twitter data for the meeting in May. A visualization tool will also be used to help the interpretation and to understand the scale of the results.
