I will be conducting a 5-day intensive course in social media network 
analysis, 4-8 July, University of Queensland - St Lucia campus (Brisbane).

The course is part of the Australian Consortium for Social and 
Political Research Incorporated (http://www.acspri.org.au) 2011 Winter 
Program.  Here is the blurb for the course:

This course will provide students with practical training in social 
media network analysis using two software packages: the VOSON System 
(a web-based application for hyperlink network construction and 
analysis) and NodeXL (a free Excel 2007/2010 template for social 
network analysis).  The main focus will be on quantitative analysis of 
Internet trace data from websites, blogsites, Twitter and Facebook. 
While there will be a lot of emphasis on network analysis (e.g. WWW 
hyperlink networks, friend/follower networks in Twitter, buddy 
networks in Facebook), text analysis will also be covered.  There will 
also be an introduction to using Virtual Worlds (e.g. Second Life and 
Massively Multiplayer Online Games) for social research.

Bookings can be made at the following page:
