Facebook is the new terrorist tool

Day three of the datasprint is going good. It is actually nice to be back at school again. Specially since I am hanging with these cool guys, Serkan, Sander and Mitch. Plus Michael and Jennifer of course (who did not attend the awesome group picture I wanted to take).


Anyways, as you can see we are all very engaged. The topic of the assignment we are working on is Dutch Jihad Facebook groups, which we are doing a social network study of to reveal how social media is used to recrute and spread information within real life and online networks.  Interesting! Wish us luck!

Cheers, May.

Inspiration beer and group assignment

Today we had to do research in our media practices seminar group. My group researched different tools for analysing and getting information about Twitter-trends: oktoberfest and The german election. Luckily we where The first ones to present(hurray! Since I hate presentations cause it makes me nervous).
