ANALYSIS TOOLS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA
AutoMap, developed by CASOS at CMU, enables the extraction of information from texts using Network Text Analysis methods and supports the extraction of several types of data from unstructured documents.
ORA-LITE is a dynamic meta-network assessment and analysis tool developed by CASOS at Carnegie Mellon. It contains hundreds of social network, dynamic network metrics, trail metrics, procedures for grouping nodes, identifying local patterns, comparing and contrasting networks, groups, and individuals from a dynamic meta-network perspective. ORA-LITE is itself limited to a maximum of 2,000 nodes per entity class.
ORA, developed by Netanomics, is a tool for network analysis, network visualization, and network forecasting. This powerful software tool gives the user the ability to analyze Dynamic Meta-Networks and process extremely large data sets. ORA can process over a million nodes.
sOCIAL mEDIA DATA cOLLECTION
CrowdTangle helps publishers identify great stories, measure social performance, and identify influencers. It's used by newspapers, television stations, digital media outlets, investigative journalists, entertainment companies, sports teams and nonprofits all over the world. Hundreds of newsrooms and thousands of journalists use the tool every day.
YouTubeTracker, developed by COSMOS at UALR, tracks, monitors, and identifies influential YouTube content and users. YouTubeTracker also gives insights on content engagement and helps identify trends and patterns.
fACT AND IMAGE TRACKERS
Factcheck.org aims to reduce confusion and misinformation that appear in U.S. politics stories by monitoring and checking the factual accuracy of what you find online. Like Snopes, this is human fact-checking.
Google Fact Check Tools consist of two tools: Fact Check Explorer and Fact Check Markup Tool. Both tools aim to facilitate the work of fact checkers, journalists and researchers. Google does not endorse or create any of these fact checks.
PolitiFact is owned by the nonprofit Poynter Institute for Media Studies and is a fact checking website that uses a Truth-O-Meter to reflect the relative accuracy of a statement. The meter has six ratings, in decreasing level of truthfulness.
Snopes.com specializes in debunking the urban legends and misinformation you find on the Internet. Articles and claims are verified by human fact checkers who write articles with their findings.
twXplorer, developed by the Knight Lab at Northwestern University, gives researchers powerful capabilities for Twitter such as, given a search term, identify the most recent tweets, tweets with common terms, tweets with hashtags, and via the links within those tweets.
BotSlayer is an application that helps track and detect potential manipulation of information spreading on Twitter. The tool is developed by the Observatory on Social Media at Indiana University --- the same lab that brought to you Botometer and Hoaxy.
Breadboard is a software platform for developing and conducting human interaction experiments on networks. It allows researchers to rapidly design experiments using a flexible domain-specific language and provides researchers with immediate access to a diverse pool of online participants.
Construct, developed by CASOS at CMU, is a multi-agent model of network evolution. The program takes into account how agents learn through interaction conducted over different media and change their information, beliefs, and activities based on what they learn.
pysmap is a high level toolkit for dealing with twitter data it also has a higher level interface for smappdragon. it has functionality from the old toolkit and functionality from our old util library smappPy.
