Quality assessment of social media geolocated posts

Welcome

Hello,

For my MSc thesis research I am looking for people with travel experience and social media accounts, who are willing to share their social media public content. From the geotags of your content, a reconstruction of your travels will be made in order to assess the quality of the geo-data that social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram provide.

The purpose of this research is on one hand to investigate to what extent social media geotagged posts are of sufficient quality to track an individual’s movements with, and on the other hand to identify possible privacy risks from social media geotags.

In case of participation, your privacy will be secured during the research. If you are willing to participate, please follow the instructions here.
