Expand Public digital sociology section[edit]

Unlike other sections, public digital sociology or e-public sociology is not explained in greater details. Social media has changed the ways the public sociology was perceived and given rise to digital evolution in this field. I would like to expand this section based on a recent article by Kieran Healy "Public Sociology in the Age of Social Media". [1] Khushboo thaker (talk) 00:00, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Sounds very good, Khushboo thaker! please go ahead with citing information from this paper. Rostaf (talk) 01:41, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Great idea! It will be interesting to see how sociology has changed due to social media. Be sure to let us know how this article will help you update this section. Also it may help to provide a clearer definition of public sociology in your update, as I am confused by the current definition. Nkunkle (talk) 20:00, 26 February 2017 (UTC)Nicole K

Expand/Update Digital Data Analysis Section[edit]

I would like to expand and/or update the digital data analysis section of this article. I found several interesting articles on the intersection of digital sociology and Big Data. I think these articles could provide more insight on how digital sociology is able to analyze large data sets from social media. Dhiraj Murthy and Sawyer A. Brown's article Big Data solutions on a small scale: Evaluating accessible high-performance computing for social research [2]is a great reference for this topic.

Very good choice, Nkunkle! Rostaf (talk) 01:42, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
That's great to have. As there is much more recent research done in this digital data analysis, this paragraph needs a lot of updates. Also, the article you mentioned would bring more insight into the recent big data scenario of this research. In addition, I felt that the example provided at the end of the paragraph needs more clarity (content analysis) Khushboo thaker (talk) 14:22, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
