Hi Nathan,

I taught a social media methods course to masters and doctoral students this term, and I used these books:

Ackland, Robert. (2013). Web social science: Concepts, data, and tools for social scientists in the digital age. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage.
Hine, Christine (Ed.). (2005). Virtual methods: Issues in social research on the internet. Bloomsbury Academic.
Rogers, Richard. (2013). Digital Methods. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press.
Markham, Annette N. & Nancy Baym. (Eds.). (2009). Internet inquiry: Conversations about method. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage.
McKee, Heidi A. & James E. Porter (Eds.). (2009). The ethics of internet research: A rhetorical, case-based process. Peter Lang.
Weller, Katrin, Axel Bruns, Jean Burgess, Merja Mahrt & Cornelius Puschmann (Eds.). (2014). Twitter and society. Peter Lang.

These provide a wide range of methods for internet research.

 Hello all,

Does anyone here have a book about online research methods that they can personally give the stamp of approval, wrt recommending it to someone who wishes to make a supplemental living as an internet researcher?

Thanks so much.

"In the absence of rigorous discipline and vigilance, smart can open the door to intellectual laziness, which leads to relying on sophistic arguments and straw men to play roles better filled by critical thinking and logic.  Being smart is no defense against being stupid."--Vincent White.
