The internet enables researchers to perform a wide variety of lab experiments on social networks online. However, conducting online network experiments presents a unique set of challenges ranging from subject attrition and pilot testing large, multi-person studies to recruiting large numbers of subjects to participate together. In the first session, attendees will learn about the recent history of large-scale network experiments and learn the best practices for conducting network experiments online. We will cover the core methodological choices including the design choices that drive success and failure, the strengths and weakness of various subject pools, and techniques for recruiting bursts of subjects. In the second session, attendees will build their own network experiments using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in the Volunteer Science platform. A basic grasp of these languages is prerequisite, but an introductory training is available upon request to attendees who are unfamiliar with them before the workshop.
