Collection of Facebook posts from February 23 - April 21 on public pages geared toward presenting Russia or Russian localities in a positive light: Russia Beyond; Moskva, ja ljublju tebja; Piter, ja ljublju tebja; Moj gorod; Moj gorod - Perm'. The Facebook Public Graph API was used, without any tokens that would allow for collection of user metadata. The dataset contains the text of posts, their urls, and the number of 'like' engagements after 48 hours. It is also formatted for quantified content analysis.
