Extended Abstract: Expanding Digital Audience Analysis Techniques to Include Social Media Analytics (SMA)

Abstract

This project explores what is meant by 'digital audience analysis' as the concept has evolved. The author explores traditional forms of audience analysis and explains how these techniques have expanded to include digital audiences such as users of software, online documentation, and websites. Then, the author explores how social media further expands the idea of digital audience analysis to include social media analytics (SMA) in the form of structured and unstructured data. Another approach to social media analysis addresses context rather than analytics by closely examining user-generated data for evidence of user stories, self descriptions, and key questions. Together the expansions illustrate a taxonomy of digital audience analysis techniques that may be useful for professional communicators.
