An increasing number of organizations, governments, public and private companies are begining to use social media data to support their deliberation and decisions making. As part of our initiative on Social Media Data Stewardship, we are collecting and featuring examples of how some organizations are mining and using social media data.

Below are some recent news stories about how various stakeholders are using (and misusing) social media data as part of their day-to-day operations. If you see a story that should be added to this list, please use this online form to share the link to the story with us or tweet using the hashtag #SocMedData
