Monitoramento do debate público nas redes sociais na América Latina.

The public debate on the social networks

Learn about our studies and about the monitoring of public policies and identification of bots and fake news

FGV ECMI monitors the public debate on social networks through a set of methodologies and research procedures, articulating knowledge from the areas of Linguistics, Sociology, Communication, Statistics and Information Technology. This integration of domains is necessary in order to enable us to not only extract and organize the enormous volume of data on the internet, but also qualify and understand the social perceptions with scientific rigor, respecting the relevance of social networks – especially Twitter and Facebook – and the impact of disinformation for the Brazilian society.

Dealing with large quantities of data is always a challenge, and such an endeavor requires a rigorous methodology in order to analyze the potential social and political implications.
