In this post we will demonstrate how one can analyze any Facebook group or profile using a combination of freely available tools. We will take as an example the recent Russian protest movement against rigged elections. Recently there have been many groups popping up on Facebook bringing people together around certain goals and tasks of the movement: self-organized activist groups producing promo materials, singing petition against Vladimir Putin, organizing demonstration for fair elections in Berlin, Germany.
Dmitry Paranyushkin of Nodus Labs was invited to take part in the “settlement” initiated by Vladimir Miller in early January 2011.
In Vladimir’s own words: “The settlement is a model to engender and structure work, knowledge, events and encounters. In a shared space, the participants function as an open group where questions of territory, negotiation and hospitality in art production surface. […] Between anarchy and the rule of majority the settlement praxis actively searches for a spatialized production of dis-agreement.”
