Abstract

Associative Group Analysis (AGA) is an effective method in social studies to measure cultural differences. However, it suffers from intensive human efforts in data collection and result compiling. In this research, we design an innovative method called SoM-AGA which utilizes social media and mimic AGA survey. It provides an alternative to traditional AGA method via using text mining techniques to analyze forum data. Experiment results showed that our SoM-AGA approach is capable of generating output that is comparable to traditional AGA survey output. The research suggests promising directions to use social media content as a supplement to traditional survey instruments in social studies.
