Data, data everywhere. With faster computers and cheaper storage, bigger
data sets are becoming abundant. Social media is a key source of big data in
the form of user and system generated content. What do we do with all of the
social data and how do we make sense of it? How does the use of social media
platforms and the data that they generate change us, our organizations, and
our society? What are the inherent challenges and issues associated with
working with social media data? What obligations do we have as social media
researchers to protect the privacy of the users? These are just a few
questions that will be explored at the 2016 International Conference on
Social Media & Society (#SMSociety). 


Now, in its 7th year, the conference is an interdisciplinary academic
conference focusing exclusively on social media research. The conference
brings together top researchers and practitioners from academia and industry
who are interested in studying and understanding social media impact and
implications on society. This year's conference offers an intensive
three-day program comprising of workshops, tutorials, paper presentations,
panel discussions, and posters covering wide-ranging topics related to
social media research.


PUBLISHING OPPORTUNITIES: Full papers presented at the conference will be
published in the Conference Proceedings by ACM International Conference
Proceeding Series (ICPS). All accepted papers (full and WIP) will also be
invited to submit their extended papers to Special Issues of Big Data &
Society (BD&S) and American Behavioral Scientist (ABS) published by SAGE
