Special Issue on "Social Media Sensing: Methodologies and Applications"
MDPI Sensors

Online social media (OSM) platforms are becoming one of the most 
effective tools of communication among people thanks to the fact that 
more than half of the world’s population are active OSM users. Thanks to 
the support supplied by OSM platforms, media can travel around the world 
at lightning speed. OSM can be employed for numerous purposes, including 
sharing news, providing a personal opinion on a subject, entertaining or 
educating oneself, and much more.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise that OSM sensing can be used as a 
source of data to understand people’s opinions as a whole. For example, 
a company may decide to conduct a series of studies concerning how 
customers see their products.
On top of that, real-time OSM sensing can also be helpful in critical 
scenarios, such as in disaster or emergency response. Since OSM sensing 
is a relatively new topic, many challenges remain unsolved, and a lot 
more can be achieved, both in terms of methodologies and applications. 
Additionally, OSM sensing has some significant implications concerning 
how user privacy is managed and other ethical concerns.
This Special Issue aims to put together original research and review 
articles on recent advances, technologies, solutions, applications, and 
new challenges in the field of Social Media Sensing.
