I can recommend the open source and free SocialMediaLab R package
which was created at the VOSON Lab (ANU) by Tim Graham and myself, with
contributions by Chung-hong Chan (MZES, University of Mannheim).
SocialMediaLab aims to be a "Swiss army knife" for collecting network
and text data via public APIs for Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
The version on CRAN (0.23.2) will collect comment text from Facebook
pages, but to get the text of the Facebook posts themselves you will
need to install version 0.23.3 which is hosted on github:
You can find more information about SocialMediaLab here:
Tutorial materials are here: http://vosonlab.net/SocialMediaLab
I am running a "Big Data Analysis for Social Scientists" training course
at the University of Melbourne 29 Jan - 2 Feb, where there will be a
focus on R (SocialMediaLab for data collection, igraph for network
analysis and other R packages for text analysis) and other tools (Gephi
network visualisation, VOSON for hyperlink network collection). See here:

>>> I’m interested in learning more about social media analytics. I’ve already taken the excellent introduction by Jean Burgess and Alex Burns through the FutureLearn site where they focus on data collection and analysis via TAGS, Tableau and Gephi. Is anyone aware of other introductory materials that are similar or build on that course? Books, MOOCs, videos, etc. are all appreciated.
