I hope you're all doing well!
Our next class will take place on Friday, April 3, starting at 10.15 with a lecture on "Social editors": Social media as a source of information & disinformation, and continuing with the exercise that should help us understand how the algorithms (recommendation systems) of different platforms work.
In a preparation for tomorrow, I am sending you a text by Chico Q. Camargo: https://theconversation.com/youtubes-algorithms-might-radicalise-people-but-the-real-problem-is-weve-no-idea-how-they-work-129955

We truly hope you are all doing well and that you are somewhere on safe. I am sure we are all still stressed with what happened on Sunday, especially those who stayed in Zagreb. We hope that our next meeting will be at least some distraction from everything what is going on at the moment around us. Please read the information about this week course agenda.
This Friday we will meet at 10:15h when I will be giving a short lecture on suggested readings. I will try to record the lecture and make it available to others who will not be able to join us at 10:15h. Last week Iva gave you short overview on the “Big Data, Online Platforms, Data-driven Communication” and this Friday we will talk about “Open data and strategic communications (social media analytics, sources, tools, techniques and theories)”. Suggested readings are (available in teaching materials):
● Plowman, K. D. & Wilson, C. (2018). Strategy and Tactics in Strategic Communication: Examining their Intersection with Social Media Use. International Journal of Strategic Communication, 12(2): 125-144. DOI: 10.1080/1553118X.2018.1428979
● Batrinca, B & Treleaven, P. C. (2014). Social media analytics: a survey of techniques, tools and platforms. AI & Soc, 30: 89–116. DOI 10.1007/s00146-014-0549-4
The seminar will start at 12:00 as it is scheduled. We have one presentation titled “Open data - the case of data.gov.hr” that will be given by our colleague Silvija Valjin, while group 6 will be the “Challengers”.

Milica & Iva
thank you for joining our webinar today.
As promised, in the teaching materials you will find today's presentation with some key points to remember (and pay attention to) from suggested readings (which are available in the teaching materials).
The updated schedule of presentations now also contains challengers.
Milica & Iva
Hopefully, you are all doing well!
Our next meeting, this time virtual, will take place on Friday, March 20, at 12:00. Please, get yourself ready by taking these 2 steps:
1) consult the suggested readings (you'll find them in teaching materials here on the intranet)
The agenda for Friday meeting will be:
1) to discuss the readings
2) to agree on dates and contents/concepts of your presentations
3) to decide on challengers
In teaching materials (here on the intranet), you will find a table with your topics and proposed dates for group presentations. As said during out introduction class, the deadline to submit your individual essays is always 2 days before the presentation date.
The essay (1000-1500 words) should be structured in three main parts:
1) introduction (guides your reader into the paper by introducing the topic, states the main idea or argument of the essay, sets limits on the topic, and can indicate the organization of the essay)
2) body (here you develop the main points and support them with available literature/research)
3) conclusion (brings together all the main points of the essay, leaves readers with a final thought and sense of closure)
Use engaging language. Write in active voice, not in passive.
Please, provide your references in APA 6 style at the end of the text. For orientation
Do not place references in footnotes.
Should you have any questions or difficulties in attending the Friday webinar, please let us know.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday.
Iva, Milica & Marijana
