    Topic:

    Social Media Data <g class="gr_ gr_25 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" id="25" data-gr-id="25">are</g> currently being used as research data across disciplines and help researchers to gain insights into communication patterns and human behavior. However, much of the content in social media is ephemeral and may change or even disappear over time. Solutions for preserving social media data both for today's research and future uses are needed – but are difficult to obtain. This talk will give an overview <g class="gr_ gr_24 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" id="24" data-gr-id="24">on</g> the current approaches for archiving social media data and will explain some of the most urgent challenges including platform lockdowns and data accessibility and discussions about (research) ethics.
