W19 - Harvesting Information From Social Media

1:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Mary Ellen Bates, Principal, Bates Information Services, Inc.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Pinterest, ello ... Social media platforms are becoming "the Internet" of 2015, and info pros are finding that social networks are gold mines of useful intelligence. In fact, for many info pros, to not include social media in their search portfolio amounts to information malpractice. Our long- time social media denizen and searcher Bates gives you the skills you need to effectively mine social media-both text and images-while protecting your confidentiality. Even if you never intend to tweet, like, or tag, this workshop offers tools and techniques to gather insight through social networks.
