Bright ICT: Social Media Analytics for Society and Crisis Management

Abstract : Bright ICT promises a new era of IT adoption and use, however, in this current era of ubiquitous computing and social media platforms, we have witnessed IS users being rendered powerless in the information systems development process and professionally manipulated by large technology companies through the algorithmic structures of social networking platforms. In 1987 Markus & Bjorn-Andersen warned us of the potential of consequences of this situation which are now evident on a daily basis where data privacy is compromised, social media platform content is difficult if not impossible to manage and our political and economic systems are disrupted. This paper outlines an engaged research approach being taken by the RISE_SMA project to develop more innovative theoretical approaches and methods for analysing social media data for the assurance of social cohesion during times of crisis.
