Communalytic is a computational social science research tool for studying online communities and discourse. This resource uses advanced text and social network analysis techniques to automatically pinpoint toxic and anti-social interactions, detect bots, assess posts’ sentiments, identify influencers, map shared interests and the spread of misinformation, and detect signs of possible coordination among seemingly disparate actors.
There are two versions:
- Communlaytic Edu is designed for educators to teach and students to learn about social media data analytics and social network analysis.
- Communalytic Pro is designed for the academic research community and is ideal for large scale academic research projects. It provides researchers with the resources and infrastructure necessary for conducting independent research in the public interest.
