Posting information about on-going events on Twitter and Facebook; checking into and contributing new information about Points of Interest on Foursquare; updating one’s status on a variety of social networking sites, using a variety of devices, while stationary or on the move, are now so commonplace that such platforms are often the first point of call for searching for and sharing information covering a wide range of events, topics and personal or work-related interests.
As a result, enormous quantities of small user input are being piped into the data streams of the Web, leading to a rate of growth which has never before been witnessed. We refer to such small user inputs as Microposts. The #MSM2011 workshop discussed emerging to fairly advanced work on the research this has engendered. Micropost data, which spans disparate, heterogeneous topics, therefore requires new techniques for information extraction and the leveraging of semantics from Microposts, to glean the knowledge contained, and new tools that make optimal use of the semantics encoded in Microposts’. The discussions also looked at studies related to Microposts, both social and from a more technically oriented perspective, that should contribute to building appealing new systems based on this type of data.
