Learning through teaching: ATLAS.ti and Social Media

Potgieter, Andrea

Social Media is no longer a foreign concept in the current business environment. Companies, for the most part, understand the value that an effective Social Media strategy can add. Firstly, this paper reports on the possible use of ATLAS.ti in analysing user interaction on Social Media platforms, in order to generate feedback that may assist companies in developing and maintaining a customer-focused Social Media strategy. Furthermore, this paper will discuss the researcher's decision to apply ATLAS.ti for this specific purpose, as well as the challenges and victories that were faced in introducing a post-graduate student to this tool.
