High praise for the first ever handbook to address the practical use of online and social media as a research tool.

A must read for:

  • Market Researchers who want to increase their knowledge and use of the internet and social media as a modality for their projects
  • Experts in online and social media research who want to compare their experience with an alternative view of best practice
  • Buyers of market research who want to expand their understanding of what can be offered and the implicit limitations in current market research methods

Why is the book needed?

The use of the internet as a medium for market research is currently one of the most exciting and dynamically changing aspects of our industry. Despite the rapid growth in this area, there are few books that specifically explore best practice in conducting online market research and, in particular, that look at the use of social media in the online market research context.

The integration of social media into online research is a frequently discussed topic, regularly covered by conference papers, presentations and workshops. However, outside of such seminars there seems to be a shortage of accessible material for the everyday researcher. The Handbook of Online and Social Media Research aims to change that by taking market researchers beyond “conference-based” knowledge and providing them with a single, authoritative resource for best practice guidance in using the internet and social media.
