Top 10 Facebook Groups for #BigData, #DataScience, and #MachineLearning

  • Social network members are tending to more eagerly learn about big data, data science and machine learning through groups.
  • Facebook groups for Big Data and Data Science, while still much smaller than LinkedIn Groups in this area are growing and provide an important new forum for discussion.
  • This post introduces ten largest Facebook groups in big data, data science and machine learning.
  • Though this group consists of 21,239 members and is maintained by two admins (Daniyal Bashir and Mustafa Ali Qizilbash), it is a closed group and limits discussion to only Big data.
  • The group administrators host fortnightly sessions on Hadoop and Big Data and all of them are live in their YouTube channel group has 14,549 members  and was created in 2013 by Min-kyung Kim (Chief Executive Officer at BICube CO.,LTD).


Social media now not only shares friendship connections or photos of “selfies” but also spreads from political media to science information.
