Présentation de l'éditeur

How can you tap into the wealth of social web data to discover who’s making connections with whom, what they’re talking about, and where they’re located? With this expanded and thoroughly revised edition, you’ll learn how to acquire, analyze, and summarize data from all corners of the social web, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, GitHub, email, websites, and blogs.

  • Employ the Natural Language Toolkit, NetworkX, and other scientific computing tools to mine popular social web sites
  • Apply advanced text-mining techniques, such as clustering and TF-IDF, to extract meaning from human language data
  • Bootstrap interest graphs from GitHub by discovering affinities among people, programming languages, and coding projects
  • Build interactive visualizations with D3.js, an extraordinarily flexible HTML5 and JavaScript toolkit
  • Take advantage of more than two-dozen Twitter recipes, presented in O’Reilly’s popular "problem/solution/discussion" cookbook format

The example code for this unique data science book is maintained in a public GitHub repository. It’s designed to be easily accessible through a turnkey virtual machine that facilitates interactive learning with an easy-to-use collection of IPython Notebooks.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must have if interested in mining social media 10 octobre 2013
Par Bernard Enjolras - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The second edition of Mining the Social Web is not just an update of the previous edition (including Google+, GitHub, and Twitter API 1.1) but a new book. The book has been rethought in its entirety with a focus on pedagogy and practical use of the code. With the help of a virtual machine and IPython notebook (both made available by the author) it is possible to run the code without difficulty. The book includes a Twitter Cookbook section which is very useful if you want to mine Twitter. In my opinion this book is the best introduction to real-world programming in Python. It introduces many concepts and tools related to modern web-programming and data-mining. Additionally it gives you the tools and the code for querying social media APIs and analyzing your data in a meaningful way. Matthew Russell has realized a tour de force with the new edition of this book: introducing advanced programming concepts and tools in a pedagogic, accessible and practical way.

Book review - Mining the Social Web, 2nd Edition by Matthew A. Russell, O'Reilly Media

Introduction
Last year I read an article in Nature about Paul Erdős’s on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Outside mathematical circles Erdős is most known for the so called Erdős number. There are several different definitions of the Erdős number but according to Wikipedia it is defines as the "'collaborative distance' between a person and mathematician Paul Erdős, as measured by authorship of mathematical papers". So if you co-authored a paper with Erdős your Erdős number is 1. Your number will be 2 if you co-authored a paper with an author who wrote a paper directly with Erdős and so forth. Analyzing Erdős numbers is an application of social network theory and ever since I read the article I wanted to learn more about data mining applied to modern social media platforms. When researching for a book on this topic I came across Mining the Social Web and the books very practical approach convinced me to that this was the book I wanted to read.

Virtual Machine experience
The book is accompanied with a Virtual Machine experience that sets new standards for interactions between technical programming books and the code samples provided by the book. In no time you are up and running with the code samples in a IPython notebook that also can be edited and used as basis for your own data mining experiments. I would really love to see this approach adopted by other programming books.

The reader is gently guided through a software setup of VirtualBox and Vagrant and once these two programs have been installed it is just a matter of writing "vagrant up" in a terminal window and all of the necessary software used throughout the book will be installed and running in a virtual machine accessible through a web browser. Setting up the virtual machine might sound complicated but it is really quite easy. I tested the procedure for on both Mac and Windows and had no troubles getting the environment up and running in less than half an hour. And the really cool thing is that you don't have to install and manage a lot of dependencies yourself as well as you can delete everything afterwards just by deleting the virtual machine. The whole setup process is both described in the book and on videos found on the book's Github pages.

Data mining
Some knowledge and experience with Python is required fully understand the code samples. If you have experience from other modern programming languages you should not have troubles understanding basic Python code. So the choice of Python cannot be considered as a barrier for reading the book.

I am amazed of how well Russell mixes deep and complex theoretical knowledge with a very practical hands-on approach in such a way that both theory and code samples becomes very understandable. Not only does the book cover data mining of popular social media platforms as Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook but it also includes material on platforms as Google+ and Github which are usually not discussed in data mining books. After you have extracted data from some social media platform you need tools to analyze and visualize the data. Mining the Social Web gives an introduction to tools like Natural Language Toolkit and the JavaScript visualization library D3 and provides enough information for one to get started with such tools. Being able to store the extracted data is also an important feature and you will find code examples of storing data from Twitter in the popular noSQL database MongoDB.

The books does not cover social network theory in general nor graph theory so if you are looking for a book with a theoretical approach then this book is not for you. However most chapters in the book ends with a list of additional resources that can be used for further research.

Conclusion
This book is the best computer book I have read in several years. Social networks and data mining is a hot topic and reading Mining the Social Web will not only provide you knowledge about data mining but also supply practical code examples. In addition the books is an easy read and quite funny!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Easy to follow, practical, and fun! 5 novembre 2013

This book is extremely practical and has great code samples. It's easy to follow and fun! If you're interested in mining Twitter data, there is an (large) chapter focused entirely on reproducible code snippets that use the Twitter API.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent toolkit for Social Data Mining 3 novembre 2013
Par Mark Meanwell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Great guidebook to acquiring and analyzing data from leading social media sites, including Twittter, Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn and GitHub along with other web tips and tricks. The iPython notebook approach provides turn key like method to run examples and check results in line, which accelerates and reinforces the topics.

Whether you are new to social media API's and want a straightforward way to ramp up learning and discovery of social mining techniques or more seasoned user, this book has it covered. Chapter formats and exercises make it easy to work a variety of topics and are laid out in easy to follow and execute fashion.

Highly recommend, so get the book and get started!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 New Standard in Technical Books 8 novembre 2013
Par Brendon Unland - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have purchased just about every book available on social media data mining/ analytics, including the first edition of this book. What Matthew Russell has done with this second edition is amazing. With the purchase of this book, you get a fully functional virtual machine (available via download on GitHub.) As updates are made to the code for the book, you can easily pull them from GitHub. This eliminates the countless hours you spend downloading, configuring, troubleshooting, wondering if you got the right version of the needed software, etc. Within minutes you can read the book and type the code samples. Actually, the code is already there, you simply enter in some key values and watch the code run. You can then morph the code and see the effects of your changes.

Mining the Social Web is exceptionally well written covering all major social media platforms. Mr. Russell is also very approachable and answers questions very quickly.

I really can't say enough good things about this book and how it sets the bar high for future technical books!
