To study biomedical and health phenomena, social media data have emerged as a new paradigm. Millions of users in the most popular social media platforms are continuously generating quantitatively extensive and unprecedented amount of data. Despite of many benefits that can be extracted from such big datasets, there are also challenges like methodological heterogeneity in perusing research using social media data. The significance of the research area was increased in the recent pandemic conditions, as many countries are adopting various social media communication strategies developed to adapt to the Covid-19 pandemic evolution. The present Special Issue is focused on publishing highest quality papers in the areas associated to digital health and social media research. Papers involving social media research with relevance to health and biomedical sciences including clinical research and open innovation utilizing digital health techniques will be considered for publication.
