Objective and Short Description of the Book
With Facebook having 2 billion active users, YouTube following with 1.5 billion, Instagram 800 million and Twitter 330 million, the amount of data published daily is excessive. In 2020 it was estimated that 500 million tweets were published daily, 4.5 billion posts were liked daily, there were 17 billion posts with location tracking in Facebook, and 350 million uploaded daily, with the accumulated number of uploaded photos reaching 250 billion. Every minute 500 hours of new video content is uploaded in YouTube, meaning that 82,2 years of video content is uploaded daily. In Instagram 95 million photos and videos are being uploaded daily. The importance of gathering such rich data, often called “the digital gold rush”, processing it and retrieving information is vital.
This practical book aims at combining various state-of-the-art tools, technologies and techniques to aid understanding and better utilizing the power of Social Media Analytics, Data Mining and Graph Databases. The proposed book will strive to support its readers students, researchers, developers, and simple users involved with Data Science and Graph Databases to master the notions, concepts, techniques, and tools necessary to extract data from social media that facilitate information acquisition, management and prediction. 
The provisional contents of Social Media Analytics with Graph Databases will indicatively showcase:
•	Social Media analytics with hands on real-world examples
•	Data mining tools for optimized knowledge acquisition
•	How to crawl and mine data from Social Media
•	The advantages of Graph Databases
•	Graph Databases use cases
o	Understand common patterns and graph components
o	Model data and find solutions using code-level examples written in Python, SQL and Cypher query language
o	Migrating data from Relational to Graph Databases
o	Use analytical techniques and algorithms to mine Graph Database information
