Social data has been used by researchers tracking health in a number of ways. Uses include tracking mentions of specific pharmaceuticals, understanding the sentiment around smoking, and tracking the flu.
From Australia to the United States of America, researchers in various universities are working to understand the language and sentiment of political statements shared on social media.
There have been many studies done on how social media is used during severe weather. Similarly, universities are studying how effective social media can be for those responding to disasters.
