    We began to discuss data collection but never examined the details of extracting and organizing data from sites such as Instagram or Facebook.

    I would be interested in a discussion of tools which can be used to extract data from social media sites and a more general exploration of the practical and legal boundaries of data collection via the internet.

    We have seen several examples of websites which use such data collection, but I would welcome a list of other examples.

    I am particularly interested in further comparing the range of uses for such data.

    Thank you! See the new post I just did about software demos. I will demo getting data from an online source such as Instagram, and preparing the data for analysis; and also point to tools for doing it.

    (I will use our selfies dataset as one of the examples.)
