Due to shortage of funding, we cannot support the public hosting of the Social Media Macroscope beginning on 8/31/2022. With that said, all of our code is open source and we also have Dockerized the applications to allow for running the SMM on your own machine(s). We have more information on the code and Dockerized applications at https://illinoissocialmediamacroscope.github.io/smmlanding.github.io/
