Its depends on about what you wants to get information? You should have to be a member of various social networking sites like Facebook, Stumble upon, Twitter, Delicious, Digg, Myspace etc. You can visit in that particular social networking site for your interest, find groups, join them, make friends, discuss with them..

for ex., I want to know their interests , activities, for period of time,so I can make clusters .
i.e I want to find similarities between them depending on what they are doing over time.

Hello Buddy ! Best wishes for your PHD degree.
Social media is an interesting field, it need to be researched. See, I assume that you are looking for data for a comprehensive picture of usages specified by geography, demography and others. if this is the case then I must tell you these type of data are not easily available as large companies like facebook, twitter use these data to target behaviroal ads on users. you can ask any university for such type of data or any internet research firm. If lucky you will get it for free.
