the Facebooking diplomacy database project

The Facebooking diplomacy database project takes a deep dive into the use of Facebooking by diplomats.

The project is in an advanced design phase. It uses data from 160 Facebook pages published in 25 locations from 2016 and 2017 to develop insights and recommend social media strategies and tools for diplomats.

The data has led to analyses of political leaders on Facebook and uncovered some strange sources of friends for diplomatic Facebook pages.

Recent publications based on the research are available; further publications are expected soon.
