Types of social media research

Posted by Laura on Sunday, 4 July, 2010

This is more of a thinking out loud so I can delve into it later. One of the things I’ve been curious about is the type of social media research conducted by academics and marketers. The types that I can think of are:

1) Case studies for how a business uses social media and the web,
2) Content studies that look at social media research and website design of a small basket of companies,
3) Sentiment analysis and keyword mentions,
4) Relationship analysis to try to determine how people interact and to identify key influencers,
5) Population studies.

Any more that people can think of? Is there any method superior to another? Should social media researchers be valuing any over the other? Which methods are more popular and why?
