Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google + contain an outsized volume of unprocessed information. By analyzing this knowledge, new information will be gained. The traditional data processing techniques won’t be applicable for processing the increasing number of dynamic and unstructured data. In this paper, we have a tendency to discuss data processing, social media knowledge, data processing techniques applied in social media applications. A detailed survey has been performed on the works that drained the sector of social network data processing analysis and techniques followed to perform {the knowledge the info the information} mining on the social network data. Results of this survey will function as the baselines for the future data processing technologies. Data mining is evolving as a procedure for examining pre-existent databases to come up with new helpful information. The social networking sites are gaining an increased research potential for researchers as most of the people are depending upon the social network for news, and opinion of other users [1]. Internet based life mining is emerging as the strategy for speaking, dissecting and making designs that square measure in move from information in web based life by abusing numerous strategies to overcomes the bottlenecks in web-based social networking.
