Migrating the Pluragraph Project to MRML

Migrating the Pluragraph Project to MRML

Pluragraph.de was a platform for social media benchmarking and social media analysis in the non-commercial sector that existed until November 2020. In October 2020, the founders of Pluragraph (Martin Fuchs, Niels Richter and Jona Hölderle) approached the Social Media Observatory team at the HBI with the request to examine whether Pluragraph could be continued in some form or whether the long-standing data collection could be made available to the scientific community.
An initial review of the data led the team to the conclusion that PG is a very extensive and valuable resource that would be worth preserving for the scientific observation of social media data. The database, which is approximately 17 GB in size, contains key data on 19,014 organisations and 48,845 individual profiles, which are divided into 198 categories (including accounts of public institutions, state politicians, etc.). This data has already provided an essential basis for the current version of the database of public spokespersons (DBöS), which is maintained at MRML.
The aim is therefore to (1) gradually transfer the Pluragraph data collection, which has so far been maintained on a voluntary basis, to MRML, (2) to consolidate it for scientific use and (3) to integrate it with the work packages of the SMO.
