Big data is heralded as a powerful new resources for social science research and business analytics. The excitement around big data (e.g., social media data, health-care data or business data) emerges from the recognition of the opportunities it may offer to advance our understanding of human behavior and social phenomenon in a way that has never been possible before. In specific areas of social investigation, these different types of big data will often require analytical approaches which are vital for undertaking appropriate analyses.
