Your Facebook Life in 62 Seconds

If you haven't had Facebook create your movie yet, you should.  It is awesome! And what a relevant way to explore data with our students. In this project, students will look at the data that Facebook and other social media sites are storing, they will generate a list of viable questions that could be answered through this data, create search criteria and develop algorithms. To conclude this project, students will create their own Social Media Poster by investigating the data found on their own social media accounts. 

Engaging students in working with their own social media data

One source of data that participants in several discussions said would likely be engaging is students own social media participation. For example, Facebook allows you to download you data in a format that's reasonable to work with. We heard about several techniques from computational linguistics and social network analysis that might be applicable and accessible in ECS and CSP.
